Month: February 2015
Aberdeenshire Youth Council in partnership with a local publisher would like young people to send in any short stories, poems, or songs around mental health issues which young people face.
These could be based on real life events or with a bit of creative writing added. All entries will be anonymous unless the young person clearly states that they would like their name added at the end.
Entries will be chosen to feature in a book which will be published and sent to each person who sends in an entry and also copies will be sent to all schools and community centres.
All young people sending in an article will receive 250 Young Scot points, authors of articles chosen to be included in the book will receive 1000 Young Scot points.
Closing date – 27/02/15
Please send all entries to firstname.lastname@example.org

During February, the South Aberdeenshire Alcohol & Drug Forum is kick-starting local conversations on alcohol, drugs & recovery in Kincardine and Mearns and they are taking over K&M Communities to help them! Happy to have you here guys!
The Forum is a place for local people to come together to discuss local issues pertaining to alcohol and drug use. The South Forum covers Kincardine & Mearns and Marr and anyone living, working, studying or having an interest in alcohol and other drugs issues in these areas is welcome to come along.
There’s an excitement growing around the knowledge that recovery is possible, that people can change and friends, family and communities are crucial in supporting these changes. We’d like to start a local conversation to promote this and we’d like you to be part of it.
