Grand Opening of Venture Trust National Participant Centre
On 25 June 2015, Venture Trust opened the doors to its new National Participant Centre in Stirling. The newly refurbished building is the main hub from which critical Venture Trust work takes place.
Venture Trust supports a wide range of young people with disadvantaged or challenging backgrounds, to get back on their feet. It does this through intensive wilderness expeditions and life skills development support, with the aim being to give the participants the tools to make positive changes in their lives. That could be anything from finding a home, gaining skills to enable them to get a job, going to college, or getting help with addiction. The new centre in Stirling will provide a base from which to operate these wilderness expeditions.
We would like to thank LandAid, St James’s Place Foundation, Wooden Spoon and the Clothworker’s Foundation for their support with the project. Also many thanks to Glasgow Warriors and Scotland rugby player Dougie Hall, for opening the centre.
To find out more about the people we support, our personal development and employability skills programmes and the positive impact achieved, please visit our programmes page.
The press release about the opening event is also available here.
We will put photos of the centre up here soon!
