Are you a care-experienced young person, and you want to know more about our charity’s services for vulnerable and at risk young people? We’ve created these pages to answer some of the questions that you may have, and to point you in the direction of further support and advice if you need it.

This section introduces Kibble and how we work to empower young lives affected by trauma or adversity, and links to other sources of advice and support that can help you understand your rights and entitlements as a young person in Scotland. At Kibble, we’re dedicated to turning around the life chances of young people who have experienced trauma or adversity, or who are unable to live with their families. We’re committed to nurturing young people’s wellbeing in a holistic, rounded way. We believe that, to give young people the best start in life, they must be:

  • Safe
  • Healthy
  • Achieving
  • Nurtured
  • Active
  • Respected
  • Responsible
  • Included

These are known as the 8 SHANARRI indicators, and they inform all aspects of our work at Kibble. All 8 are needed if a young person is to reach their full potential. We use these indicators to assess where you might need extra help or support, and to measure progress. Follow the links below to see how we support young people in all aspects of their wellbeing.
