Silver Stag of Scotland
Silver Stag of Scotland is a Community Interest Company (CIC) which is a social enterprise operating as a limited company. This allows them to conduct the business to help serve the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in society.
Silver Stag of Scotland was set up to make a difference to the lives of those who were at the extreme edge of social and economic disadvantage, both in this country and abroad. As an outward focused organisation, they measure our success by the lives we transform, not the awards we receive or the publicity we generate.
Silver Stag provides employment opportunities for those in Scotland who have been affected by social or economic difficulties. This may include young people who have experience of homelessness, disability or other social or economic isolation.
As part of this programme of support, they provide funding for STAND to provide pre-employment and vocational training, whilst Learning Alliance Scotland provide three SQA qualifications in peer education and peer mentoring. These qualifications then equip the learner to enter into either the labour market or identify an organisation where they can use their new skills as a volunteer.
