    1. Personal development – participants will build skills for life, become more independent, and work towards a community project.
    2. Mental health and resilience - a range of mental health sessions will be delivered via group work to help boost confidence and low mood. Raith Rovers CF will lead a variety of sporting activities to promote physical fitness, leadership, and coaching skills.
