SmartLiving has two projects that operate in Falkirk, Fife and Edinburgh.

Step On is for young people based in Edinburgh, Falkirk and Fife. The programme helps young people to identify their goals and aspirations for the future and supports them to achieve these by accessing relevant training, volunteering opportunities, future education or Employment. Step On now runs SQA qualifications in Personal development. We support the young people to identify projects they are interested in and work with them to develop their ideas. We have helped facilitate a variety of projects from developing and filming short movies, running social media campaigns, to creating and developing phone apps.

In giving up their time, the young people can be part of a project that will help them improve their self-belief and confidence whilst gaining a qualification and a Saltire Award.   

Step On also runs a Peer Education Project where young people who have experience in homelessness or independent living at a young age are trained as Peer Educators. They then deliver sessions to high school pupils raising awareness of homelessness and the challenges young people can face securing and managing their own tenancies.

Step Up is a 12-week Employability course for young people in Falkirk and Fife. The course gives young people the opportunity to develop their confidence, self-esteem and employability skills as well as gaining valuable work experience and gaining an SQA accreditation.
