Help for teenagers seeking housing

28th August 1998 at 01:00
Free teacher-training sessions in housing education are being run in September by the Housing Education Information Development project, based on its video pack I'm Offski.

The pack, launched by the Housing Minister Calum MacDonald, tackles issues for young people leaving home to go to university, to gain some independence, or because they have to.

It is now in 70 schools around Scotland and offers lesson plans and activity sheets for fourth, fifth and sixth-year classes.

Two-hour sessions will take place in Inveraray, Dingwall, Perth, Fort William and Thurso, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Ayrshire.

Further information about training or the pack, from Louise Andrew or Annie O'Rourke at the Scottish Council for Single Homeless, Wellgate House, 200 Cowgate, Edinburgh EH1 1NQ, tel: 0131 226 4382.
