Independent Living Support is proud to deliver our youth development services (GoBeDo) across Dumfries and Stranraer. Funded by The Holywood Trust, The Gannochy Trust, and The Robertson Trust. GoBeDo stands for Go interesting places, BE all you can be, DO fun things.
Yvonne Renwick leads our youth services side, and Laura Middleton works from our Stranraer location supporting youths.
Our aim is to improve life chances, self-confidence and self-esteem for people aged 16 to 25 years by offering tailored support plans and group activities.
Our dedicated Dumfries and Galloway Youth Team can help you with such things as:
Confidence and self-esteem
Debt and money matters
Cooking and nutrition
Keeping safe and well
Engaging in activities
Parent and Toddler Group
Alongside the GoBeDo Yvonne organises and runs our parent and child group on a Tuesday at Lincluden Community Centre. Our team can support young parents with learning new parenting skills, and help with all the new challenges parenthood brings.
