Thanks to our partners, we have been able to develop and expand Growing2gether to reach more young people across Highland and beyond. The support of Trusts and Foundations, Corporates, Local Authorities and the Scottish Government has been crucial in helping us empower young people to transform their lives. 
We are keen to reach more young people who need us. If you are interested in discussing partnership, donating or fundraising for us, please contact Elaine Bennett, Director of Fundraising:
