We are always delighted to be chosen as the nominated charity by groups from Secondary Schools in Edinburgh and Lothians, taking part in the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) Scotland.
YPI is run and funded by The Wood Foundation. It is usually undertaken by a full year group to help the pupils engage with local charities and show how they make a difference in the community. In order for the young people to win the £3000 funding for their chosen charity, they must prepare and showcase a creative presentation to a judging panel.
Our Prevention Team can support pupils with their YPI presentations. We have had several groups win the £3,000 for our service in the past. These include: Firhill High School; Balerno Community High School; Armadale Academy; and Broughton High School.
A huge thank you to all the YPI groups who have chosen to support ERCC and raise awareness of our service, the impact of sexual violence and recovery.

We have created this helpful information pack about ERCC for YPI groups.
