Arran Youth Foundations (AYF) formed in 2008 with the aim of providing youth work services for the Isle of Arran. It now has two employees and ten volunteers. AYF’s main objectives are to provide a safe, warm environment in which young people can meet, as well as develop educational, physical and social skills and foundations of friendship through a variety of activities and events. The work of this incredible organisation has significantly challenged the view of old that there is no one on the island who cares about young people. As the project has grown, they have greatly increased their engagement of the young people who suffer more traditional indicators of disadvantage: those who are from broken homes or poverty, are involved with social services, have drug problems in their family, have learning disabilities, and victims of domestic or sexual abuse.
