Partnership working supports match day experience for young people


Thanks to our partnership with Kilmarnock Football Club and the Killie Community charity, we recently supported a group of young people to attend their first ever football match at Kilmarnock’s Rugby Park.

The group thoroughly enjoyed their day and it was great to see them soaking up the atmosphere as Kilmarnock took on Hearts.

A special thanks goes to Killie in the Community’s Jordan Allison, who provided free tickets for the event.

Family Support Practitioner, Jamie Turnbull, said the day was a huge success and will go a long way towards helping our young people feel supported and included:

“The experience was like no other, with these young people being part of something special and feeling overwhelmingly included and part of the Killie family. Thank you to the Kilmarnock FC supporters for welcoming us into your Killie family and allowing us to share this experience with you all.

Never take for granted what you have and share with others. It was a special day for many of our young people. Young people being part of their community can only enhance their opportunities to achieve their goals in life.”

The Killie Community delivers programmes across Ayrshire that promote active lifestyles and tackle health and social inequalities.
