Moving On Project & YesChef

Action For Children's Moving On Project turns the lives around of young men who've been in Polmont Young Offenders institution. It aims to reduce the risk of the individuals reoffending.

Part of the project includes YesChef, a programme that trains six young men with cooking skills. It gives the would-be-chefs work experience in restaurants and top catering facilities like the Tennent's Training Academy. The training culminates in an event for 500 people at Glasgow's Hilton where the six boys will show off their training and cook a six-course meal for each guest. Find out more about the dinner and how you can attend here.

Young men who've previously taken part in the project have gone on to work in restaurants throughout Glasgow. The project makes a massive long-term difference to the lives of the men taking part. founder, Ronnie Somerville, says: "By simply booking lunch or dinner, people can help raise £1000s for this fantastic charity."

"The 'Moving On' project changes young men's futures, setting them on a different path and breaking the cycle of crime. The project has been extremely successful in reducing reoffending and helping young people supported by the charity move into a career in catering."

"We're imploring diners to book a meal out between the 10 th and the 23 rd April and help raise as much money as possible for this important project."
