Employment & Training Initiatives

Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation statistics tell us that North Ayrshire is one of the most deprived areas within Scotland and the town of Kilwinning itself has 6 data zones classified as being within the most deprived 15% (2009 statistics)

Youth Under Construction has helped create jobs for young people in youth work, administration and the creative and catering/hospitality industries.

Oikos coffee house is a social enterprise and is a hub for much of our community work.

We have a strong team of volunteers who invest their time in helping others learn new skills for life and improve their chances of gaining employment.
