The centre for confidence and well being is based around the idea that people in Scotland suffer from a lack of confidence and that improvements to quality of life be it for health, education or employment can only be brought about through their confidence and sense of self belief.
The centre has many influential connections. It was officially opened in 2004 by then first minister Jack McConnell. Notable Scottish media figures have spoken favourably about the centre. It is also jointly running the vanguard programme in conjunction with the Scottish parliament’s Futures Forum. This programme teaches community organisations about the power of optimism and positive psychology
