We See Potential | Venture Trust’s Impact 2019-20

Updated: Jan 6

We are proud to publish our 2019-20 Impact Report – our first ever Impact Report. The launch comes at a challenging time when the people we’re here to help are being disproportionately affected by COVID-19. The report shows how our work delivers results for people. This will be all the more needed as Scotland moves forward in recovery.

Here are some of the highlights:

We supported:

  • 159 people into employment, training, education or volunteering Of the people we worked with:

  • 82% of participants improved employability

  • 72% of participants improved resilience and confidence

  • 74% of participants reduced their risk of offending

We have services for employability, community justice and mental wellbeing and we have clear results for all of them.

We know that over the next year demand on support services is going to be unprecedented. We can help. We’ll continue to get results. But we cannot do this on our own. Your support has and will continue to make it possible for us to reach people in need and help them to create a more positive future for themselves, their families and communities.

Our Head of Programme Performance and Impact Andrew Russell says:

"I'm very excited to launch our first Impact Report. In a tough year, it's been good to celebrate the positive changes individuals have achieved with our support. The results in the report highlight how the people we work with have developed the life skills, stability and confidence needed to reach their potential.”

Please have a look at our report – it’s short and it’s got nice photos! – and get in touch if you think we can work together as Scotland recovers.
