thriving partnership with Project Scotland scored more coverage for the care and housing specialist this week.

Blackwood’s partnership with the nation wide initiative Project Scotland, which aims to get people aged between 18 and 30 into volunteer placements, has allowed many young volunteers to gain experience working for a leading charity. However for one lucky person this led to a full-time career.

The story of Paul Richaux caught the eye of the editor of Source Magazine, Scotlands number one student magazine, who dedicated a piece to Paul to find about his success with Blackwood and how others could achieve the same through the Project Scotland scheme.

This excellent coverage was the result of the hard work of the award winning team at Holyrood PR who responded to a request from the editor of Source Magazine and pitched Paul’s story to them.
