Pathways to Confidence logo
Pathways to Confidence aims to build supportive relationships for young people and families, allowing confidence to grow, helping remove barriers they may have, giving them support to achieve their true potential.

Pathways is delivered in partnership with Bellshill & Mossend YMCA. We also connect with other local delivery partners to provide additional and specialised support to families including financial and housing services, counselling, and health visits.

Pathways is a holistic programme of support for the entire family. You can read more about the impact Pathways has had from this North Lanarkshire Psychological services review, and also from the Pathways to Confidence website

If you would like to volunteer to become a family mentor you can find out more about what's involved on our volunteering roles page.
