Welcome to Day1
Helping the next generation to discover their potential


DAY1 is a Scottish based children’s and young person charity.  Our vision is to help every child and young person in the Highlands of Scotland to achieve their potential.


We have a number of children and youth projects, all aimed at helping the next generation to realise their potential.  Our core service is our mentoring programme.  Since 2005, 93% of young people matched to a DAY1 mentor have achieved a positive destination such as work, further education or training.

In June 2014, Day1 was presented the highest national honour that can be bestowed upon volunteering groups, The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. Termed the MBE for volunteering groups it recognises the outstanding contribution made to local communities by groups in the UK voluntarily devoting their time for the benefit of others.

Day1’s mentoring programme is run using MentorNet, an on-line mentoring platform that makes it easy for mentors and mentees to communicate and makes it simple for Day1’s coordinator to track contact between mentors and mentees. MentorNet was developed by sfG Software as a joint venture with Day1
