Foyer REACH follows a weekly structure based on community involvement, personal development, wellbeing and employability learning. We work in partnership with Aberdeenshire Alcohol and Drug Partnership and North East Scotland College.

Participants will gain a City & Guilds Level 1 Certificate in Employability Skills. The REHIS Food Hygiene Certificate, First Aid at Work Certificate, Manual Handling and Customer Service training certificates will also be available.

Workshops will take place focused on wellbeing and goal-setting for the future. We will work in partnership with other agencies to ensure specific recovery support is available to those who need it, as well as peer mentoring and service user involvement opportunities.


Week 1/2: Getting to Know You: A chance for participants to get to know each other and start working as a team, through team games and creativity sessions.  A First Aid at Work Certificate will be gained.

Week 3/4/5: Personal Development: Workshops in personal development skills, budgeting, planning, health and wellbeing and activities to broaden confidence, such as self-defence classes. REHIS Food Hygiene Certificate will be gained.

Week 6: Outdoor Adventures: A chance for the group to try out new activities using their new team-working skills and gaining self-confidence.  Activities will be suited to team members’ physical abilities.

Week 7/8: Community Projects: The group will plan and carry out projects to benefit the community, giving them a sense of purpose and learning essential planning and project management skills.

Week 9: Next Steps: A range of future options will be explored including volunteering, further education and employment. The group will be introduced to all the different agencies that can help them on their way.

Week 10/11: Community Challenge: This is the group’s chance to put into action all the new skills they have learned through the course and when they will plan activities to make a difference in their community. All planning and work will be done by team members, giving a fantastic sense of accomplishment at the end. ASDAN Volunteering Award will be gained.

Week 12: Moving On / Graduation: The group will plan a graduation ceremony taking stock of all they have achieved and inviting their friends and loved ones to share in their success.

Week 13/14: Employability Extra: Participants will be supported to attend a suitable 2 week work placement to gain experience or do other employability activities such as IT courses.

Here's something you should know

Info Box

Employability programmes work a little differently from other courses, especially when it comes to eligibility. For example, someone from Glasgow wouldn't be eligible for a programme taking place in North Ayrshire, and vice versa. Check the Postcode Eligibility tab in the Things to Know section to make sure this programme is open to you.
