Hyslop Visits West Lothian Sport for Employment Charity
Local MSP Fiona Hyslop visited the UK’s leading Sport for Employment Charity, Street Leagues on Friday (19th May) to meet the young people involved and learn more about the work they do in some of Scotland’s most deprived areas.
“I was delighted to meet Steven Jardine and the local young people benefitting from Street League at Blackburn Juniors Football Club.
“There are many young people in West Lothian who face significant obstacles when trying to move into a life of work or further education and training. As well as health and fitness training Street League will offer sessions on CV writing, interview training, employability qualifications and mentor support.
“Using sport as a vehicle to provide young people with the skills to turn their lives around is a fantastic venture and one I am happy to support.”
