On track for a positive future - Venture Trust in The Scotsman

Venture Trust’s programmes for ex-service personnel have been featured in The Scotsman on Thursday, August 17th

The double page article highlighted the positive results emerging from the Positive Futures programme and for veterans on the Living Wild programme.

The article also explained how Venture Trust is filling a gap in support services for ex-servicemen and women with its unique three-phase programmes.

Interim findings from an independent evaluation suggest the Positive Futures programme is unique: “No other organisation is offering a three-phase programme for veterans, combining key ingredients delivered across three sequential phases.” Participants are improving their confidence, motivation and developing new skills to better deal with stressful, unfamiliar or negative situations. This is leading to better health, stability, education, training, employment or volunteering opportunities with Venture Trust and the organisation’s many partners.

Partner agencies and organisations have reported the improvement in the quality life for veterans they have referred to venture Trust.

“There have been dramatic and lasting life-changing outcomes. Clients are moving into employment, volunteering, education and training.”

Moving forward, with continued support from funding and delivery partners, Venture Trust wants to use evidence-based outcomes to inform and influence policy and best practice for ex-servicemen and women across the UK.

Venture Trust’s programmes are making a difference. They are helping veterans who are struggling with the transition to civilian life make positive changes.

“In essence, Venture Trust has given me a platform to enhance my life quality and the ability to help my fellow veterans.” – Brian Moran former Royal Marine Commando
