TO TRANSFORM LIVES – AN OPTION FOR THE YOUNG
It is for Nicola and others like her that the Kirk continues tirelessly to provide support to the young, the disenfranchised and those on the edge of society.
And it is for that reason on Wednesday that the Church is launching a new strategy for helping the country’s most disadvantaged youngsters, “An Option for the Young.”
This is a clear sign of people across Scotland (because it couldn't be done without the support of more affluent parishes) combining to make a difference in the lives of some of our most disadvantaged young people - and in the process, showing that the Church is getting it's priorities right even in hard financial times.
We are here to make a difference in people’s lives and reach out with a hand. Why – because, that’s what we do and to give those that need it, the chance of a new and transformed life.
