EPIC Assist Charity Scotland (EPIC) was founded in 2013 to provide support and development opportunities to disadvantaged and vulnerable groups throughout Scotland. We expertly focus on the many issues that hinder the positive development of key life skills, employment, and social inclusion.
Over the past few years, EPIC has excelled in developing educational projects for youth from less privileged or vulnerable backgrounds. In the last five years, different versions of the project have successfully run under different names (Scottish Girls Project and Scottish Boys Project) with a range of social and religious groups at various locations across Scotland. Our overall goal is to encourage the personal development of youth through the acquisition of key life skills, which are less likely to be addressed at school or home.
EPIC benefits from the expertise of its sister organization’s Nezisková organizácia EPIC in Slovakia and EPIC Assist Australia. EPIC Australia has been delivering diverse projects for over 30 years, including mental health and disability awareness training, Disability Employment Services, volunteer programs, and diversity and inclusion workshops for employers.
