YOUNG people across Helensburgh and Lomond can increase their employability skills in a new programme.

The team at Street League will be running a 10-week programme called Own Your Future in the area, as well as in Balloch and Dumbarton, from July 22.

Funded by the UK Government, the project is aimed at young people aged 16 to 24 who are not in education, employment or training. 

Participants will get help with CV-writing, job applications and interview skills, and will have access to free sport and fitness sessions. 

They could also earn £55 per week and get awarded an SQA qualification by the end of the programme.
