Peebles Community Action Network
Peebles CAN is a charity that works towards building community resilience and sustainability. Our objective is to work creatively with all sectors of the community, with a particular focus on developing self-sustaining projects that build community capacity.
Peebles CAN has evolved over the years in response to what the community has told us it wants. As a result our work has increasingly focussed on young people and families as they are often our most vulnerable and least represented groups in our community.
We have a commitment to building local employment, particularly with young people and to encourage and develop our staff skills and capabilities. We do this by providing opportunities for all members of the community, but particularly our young people, to learn about the world of work and to most importantly learn about themselves and their own capabilities.
