Jane Bainbridge, CANAPE SCIO
CANAPE (Choosing A New And Positive Employment) SCIO (Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation) works with vulnerable young people aged 16-24 who have offended in the past.
We offer three services at present
Emotional Peer Mentoring
Outside and Event catering
Our catering helps raise funds to allow us to provide trauma therapy to our young people. It also allows them to gain some practical and valuable work experience on their CV. We are based in South Lanarkshire, but will attend events with around an hours travelling distance.
We are keen to raise our profile and in doing so raise funding so that we can support more young people. We are in the process of raising funds for our first training kitchen which will be based at Lang Loch, just outside Lanark, in 2015.
