Could you help The Matter research and design a campaign to help raise awareness around the consumption of alcohol and its impact in Glasgow?

The Matter, a programme delivered by Young Scot and Snook, are inviting young people in Greater Glasgow and Clyde aged 16-25, to take part in a programme that gives young people an opportunity to research, design and help implement a social marketing campaign for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to raise alcohol awareness.

You will be selected to form a small group of 8-10 people and will conduct research, provide insight and put forward ideas and solutions in order to tackle the issue.

Your team will write and publish your own newspaper, then present your opinions and the work you have produced at the event launch, after the project has ended.

The best thing is that you don’t need any previous skills to get involved and all of the activities are supported by staff from The Matter. Your participation will be recognised – we will support you through a form of accreditation that suits you like a Youth Achievement or a Saltire Award.

If you’re interested then fill out the application form or get in touch with me on
