Listen Well Scotland News

Huge Congratulation to SPEYSIDE HIGH SCHOOL who are the winner of the Listening Challenge - part of the Listen Well Award - our new listening course for schools which has taken place in 7 schools in Scotland.

The winning video can be seen on our Facebook page

We hope this moving video will promote the importance of listening for health and wellbeing especially among young people

Our grateful thanks to all the participating schools. There were some very creative productions all of which contain pieces which Listen Well Scotland hope to use in the future.

Update on the Listen Well Award - our new listening course for schools - being piloted in 7 schools in Scotland.

Our website is in the process of redesign. We were hoping to have had it completed by now but for  number of reasons Listen Well Scotland decided to postpone the redesign in order to include important development information. We continue to keep information current though and look forward to being able to announce the launch of the new website soon. Than you for your patience.

Listen Well Scotland is beginning a new recruitment and training programme for VOLUNTEERS. This is in response to the exciting but growing demand for our services as people recognise the connection between listening and health and wellbeing. We are looking for individuals who would wish to offer their time and commitment to the work of Listen Well Scotland and join our committed team either as a Trainer or as a Registered Listener.

The 9 month training programme will be robust to ensure volunteers are fully resourced to work safely and effectively.

Assemblies completed at seven schools participating in our new listening course for schools - the Listen Well Award being run as a pilot over the next few months.
