Connect
Connect is a Perth and Kinross initiative that stems from TCA. It is a service for young people aged 12 to 17 who feel their use of alcohol or drugs is causing problems in their lives. Referrals can come from the young person or another worker/family member/carer. The base is in Perth, however Resource Workers will see clients locally. The Connect project focuses on the relationship between offending behaviour, psychological factors and substance misuse. It offers a flexible and collaborative approach in tackling these issues, and SCYD is an off shoot of Connect's work, and it also supports the Davie Park Project.

TCA (Tayside Council on Alcohol)
TCA is an independent voluntary organisation that provides services to people suffering because of alcohol misuse. Advice and counselling services are provided to clients in a range of settings and at various times. The service is based in Dundee, but sees clients in various GP practices and other venues in Strathmore. Clients may be those effected by alcohol themselves or people effected indirectly (e.g. partners). The Young Person's Service covers alcohol and drugs, through 12 paid workers and 12 volunteers working across Tayside.

Volunteer Befriending
This is a scheme where adult volunteers offer friendship on a one to one basis to young people. Unfortunately the service has a long waiting list and a shortage of volunteers. The young people who are supported generally have disadvantaged backgrounds; they meet with their befriender once per fortnight for a social outing.
