Escape Youth Services is an organisation delivering locality wide youth services to young people in the Teviot locality of the Scottish Borders. We offer a drop-in facility for young peoples in the Hawick area (known as Escape Youth Café) set up in direct response to local needs and deliver weekly streetwork sessions.
Through our widened service (previously Hawick only) we aim to increase and develop youth work activity in the outlying villages where little or no provision currently exits.
We are also embarking on an exciting new Music Initiative which will be bringing some exciting workshops and sessions to Escape, Sound Cycle will keep you posted!

TRASH Arts are a leading provider of junk-percussion based workshops and other wide ranging arts projects. Since starting in 1994 we have worked throughout the UK, across Europe and in the Middle East; taking on dance, visual arts, video, mixing in conventional instruments – even doing an opera version of Hamlet. We work with a wide range of client groups: from tinies, through our nursery adventures; primary and secondary school projects, specialising in composition and performance through the use of found instruments, natural sounds, conventional instruments and techno equipment; partnership with youth organisations; special needs work with young people and adults. Our principal aim is to build confidence in being involved with the arts. A secondary aim is to use our “junk” based work to highlight the consequences of our throwaway society and to build an awareness of the need for a more ecologically sound attitude to the world around us.
