Abstract

Fairbridge in Scotland is a national charity giving young people from three of the most disadvantaged areas a fairer chance to succeed in life. Using a unique combination of long-term personal support and challenging activities, Fairbridge enables young people to build a sense of self-worth and develop the personal, social and life skills they need to enjoy a future full of choice and opportunity.
