Venture Trust has been supported by The Robertson Trust in our work with vulnerable young people in Scotland. Young people struggling with adversity, harm or vulnerability. Together we are supporting people to gain life skills, stability and confidence in order to make a happy, healthy life a reality.
Our long term partnership with The Robertson Trust is allowing us to make sure all young people can reach their potential.
Stewart Macgregor, Funding Manager at the Robertson Trust, highlights how Venture Trust’s work fits with the organisation’s 2020-2030 strategy.
“We have been a long term supporter of Venture Trust’s work and seen first-hand the difference its programmes make to young people’s lives.
“Through taking the time to build strong, respectful and lasting relationships, the organisation has a strong track record of helping those it works with overcome disadvantage, inequality and other barriers to fulfil their potential. Having received positive feedback from referral partners has helped to highlight participants’ improved interpersonal and coping skills as well as increased motivation.
“Throughout our strategy renewal process last year it was clear just how important education and work pathways are to reducing the risk of future poverty. Venture Trust continue to make a significant contribution to the lives of vulnerable people across the country with the life skills and confidence needed to move onto positive destinations.”
