LINK's Adolescent Project was invited to talk at a Holyrood Reception as part of Befriending Week 2019 celebrations. The volunteer and young person shared their story in a very powerful and emotive way. To rapturous applause, and a few tears - including mine! The event was sponsored by MSP Monica Lennon (herself an exbefriender), with closing remarks delivered by Christina McKelvie MSP. It was an unforgettable event and a privilege to be part of.
Produced for LINK by fellow Fife charity, Heart and Sound, a young peoples recording studio in Dunfermline. It is completely free to young people aged 13 - 24. Website: www.heartandsound.co.uk on 10-Jan-2019
