Works+ is an extended team effort.


This film highlights the army of partners, supporters, fixers and enablers that ensure our young people access the right services and opportunities.

Works+ offers a range of interventions and, for some, that means 1:1 sessions rather than group work.

With support, it's possible to access the help you need and turn those difficult days around.

Overcoming isolation is the theme of this beautiful, moving film.


Every young person has their own, unique Works+ journey. The recording of the song and making the video were cathartic experiences for this young person.

Works+ regularly delivers 'early-intervention' projects with under 16s. Here are two examples of Creative Recording workshops delivered at Selkirk High. The young people learned how to record and produce the songs they wrote before making the videos.

Produced in partnership with Dawn Berry Arts.

Building bridges and establishing new pathways on an historic Borders' estate.


In partnership with Bowhill House, we encourage our youngsters to embrace hard graft. This is an extended version of the film, and includes the path-building squad's blood, sweat and tears.

This monumental project provided a lightbulb moment for many clients, resulting in qualifications, confidence, college applications, employment and dirty fingernails.

Many valued local partners offer informative, hands-on and creative sessions for our youngsters, often in magnificent surroundings.

At Abbotsford, our teams learn about Sir Walter Scott's legacy, poisonous trees and creepy crawlies from Mary Kenny and her inspiring helpers at Abbotsford House.
