Today, Frances is sharing his letter to St Mungo, Glasgow’s patron Saint.
“Without MCR I don’t think I’d be doing what I’m doing right now. I’m part of a big community where we all support each other. I can’t even express my gratitude towards my mentor, my MCR Coordinator, and everyone involved in the programme.”
Like the young people before him, Frances wants to share his life story. He wants to show that him, and other young people like him, can achieve anything. They just need a bit of support to do it. All young people are talented and we want to ensure that they all get the chance to fulfill their potential. Care-experienced and disadvantaged young people deserve to have their futures determined by their talents, not their circumstances.
You can help inspiring young people like Frances in 2018.
Frances’ letter to St Mungo shows our young people have so much talent and potential. They just need a encouraging Glaswegian who can help them grow.
Can you #GiveAnHour?
This month, we launched our #GiveAnHour campaign to help Glasgow’s disadvantaged young people. One hour a week makes the difference to our city’s care experienced and disadvantaged young people. You don’t need any special qualifications because the most important quality is care for young people.
To learn how you can make a life-changing difference to a disadvantaged young person in Glasgow and #GiveAnHour in 2018, learn more about becoming a mentor.
Can you support MCR in other ways? We’re looking for volunteer support across a range of projects and activities. Here are our volunteering opportunities.

We can’t wait to work with you to offer our city’s most disadvantaged a gateway to an expanding menu of opportunities and tasters of university, college and employment.
