Equality News Update: Big Yes for award-winning scheme turning young offenders into chefs

Recently, one of our most popular fundraisers was recognised with two wins at the Scottish Events Awards. Yes Chef! sees young men we work with spend 12 weeks training in ­kitchens before being centre stage at a high-profile event and moving into careers in hospitality.

As well as winning Charity Event of the Year, it also took home the chairman’s award. Chair of the judging panel, Damian Clarke, said of the event: “A totally unique entry and one which deserves much recognition.

“Yes Chef! is a great example of a cause-related campaign which 
provides a genuine solution to a growing societal problem, helping young offenders change their lives forever and turning what was a 
negative time in their lives into a real positive.”
Yes Chef! is delivered by our Moving On project, which works with young people recently liberated from short-term prison sentences to help rehabilitate them back into their local communities.
