Chance to Succeed is funded through the Scottish Children’s Lottery.

Examples of projects or activities they may consider are: employability and skills training within a local community; mentoring or one to one support, building the self confidence and skills required to enter the employment market; provision of and access to the technical equipment required to pursue employment or further education; support to young people who have already been disadvantaged through being care experienced or suffering from a disability.
