The ‘Year of the Young People’ has kicked off in spectacular style as Wholistic Life – Coaching for Kids are set to continue their impressive provision of mental health and wellbeing services throughout South Lanarkshire.
The Larkhall based charity, who have delivered their wellness programmes to over 102 local young people, providing 612 vital interventions, had recently been awarded a £25,000 funding windfall, courtesy of the Firstport Social Entrepreneurs Fund.
Following a year of record success, the charity was visited by Christina McKelvie, MSP for Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse. The SNP MSP reiterated her support for the charity, stating they were a ‘lifeline’ to young people throughout her constituency.
Commenting, Christina McKelvie MSP said:
“I was delighted to meet with Wholistic Life again to reiterate my support and to congratulate them on the outstanding work they provide within my constituency.
“Their mental health and wellbeing programmes provide a lifeline for those young people most at need.
“Providing over 100+ programmes and 612 interventions speaks volumes of Susan and Aimee. They are to be rightly congratulated for the immense progress the charity has made, especially as we kick off 2018 as the ‘Year of Young People’ in Scotland.
Commenting, Susan Livingstone – Co-founder, Wholistic Life added:
“2018 is already proving to be hugely exciting for Wholistic Life. We are building on our achievements from last year and are on track to improve the lives of many more people through the delivery of our services.
