Who provides this?

  • Fast Forward


Fast Forward enables young people to make informed choices about their health and wellbeing.

This service involves identifying and delivering work that is connected to the experiences of young people today. Some of that is done through projects that work directly with young people and those who support them. These are often delivered in partnership with local and national agencies.

Fast Forward also provide upskilling and training in health and wellbeing related issues to staff in schools and community organisations.

The support and promotion of peer education remain a strong element of our identity and the work of the Scottish Peer Education Network (SPEN) is integral to that.
