It's never been cheaper to take part in Kiltwalk and fundraise thanks to The Hunter Foundation who underwrite Kiltwalk. Now together let’s smash fundraising out the park in 2023! Walk this way to sign up for Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee or Edinburgh.
Our mission is to support young people
WorkingRite’s focus is to close the gap in equality between those young people who are more academic, have supportive adults around them and live in the more affluent areas – and those who don’t. Our young people may not see themselves as disadvantaged – but they are the ones furthest from employment and at risk of becoming entrenched in the cycle of poverty as they enter adulthood.
The charity delivers a unique and bespoke programme for these young people that inspires and empowers them. It gives them the opportunity and potential to realise their aspirations, using the power of mentoring to support them into a successful, positive future.
Across Scotland, our programme bridges the gap between school and work. It gives young people essential work experience, provides good role models, builds their confidence and offers them a quality vocational alternative to academic learning.
Our Project Co-ordinators individually match a young person to a small business in their local community, where they learn valuable skills ‘on-the-job’, where it counts. Our ‘trainees’ are with their work placement provider for three to six months during which time they are guided by an older mentor in the business with continued support from their Project Co-ordinator. The goal is to secure a job or apprenticeship at the end of the placement – and 80% do!

If you're looking for a meaningful way to make a difference in the lives of young people, donating to WorkingRite is a great place to start. Your contribution can have a tremendous impact on the organisation's ability to provide critical support and resources to young people facing challenging circumstances. But with so many different ways to give, it can be hard to know where to start or what kind of impact your donation will have. Below, we'll break down the different donation amounts and show you exactly how your contribution can help young people transform their lives.

No matter the size of your donation, every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated by WorkingRite and the young people we support.

WorkingRite values every donation and recognises the importance of community support in helping young people overcome adversity and achieve their full potential.
Your support can change lives
Charity partners are organisations, companies and individuals that work with a charity to support their cause. This can include becoming a charity of the year, donating professional services, awarding grants or supporting us in another way.
A volunteer mentor is an adult matched with one young person after they have completed the programme to provide ongoing support and encouragement as they move into adulthood. Mentors are all fully trained and supported.
We match one young person to a local business, they have an interest in, for 2-6 month work placements. You and the young person are supported throughout by the local Project Coordinator and we provide protective clothing, relevant training and handle the paperwork.
