Imagine a well-equipped and attractive activity space kitted out with a range of digital technology where young people are able to make, create, experiment and explore.  Although we ask you to imagine this, digital makerspaces already exist and the TEK CARE project will co-create new digital makerspaces with and for care experienced young people right across Scotland.

YMCA Scotland is leading the TEK CARE partnership with 5 other organisations: Barnardos Scotland, Mohr Collective, Renfrewshire Council, Scottish Tech Army and YouthLink Scotland. This is a Life Changes Trust Legacy Project.

They're seeking a brilliant and passionate individual to lead this project, working directly with a steering group led by care experienced young people.

This post is for care experienced people. Care experience can be direct (i.e. you have spent time in residential care, kinship care, foster care or been looked after at home for any length of time). Care experience can also be indirect for example, you may have been adopted at birth, you may be a foster carer, or have fostered or adopted siblings.
