We work to make a positive life possible for some of Scotland’s most vulnerable people across community justice, employability and wellbeing. Our intensive personal development and experiential learning - delivered in Scottish communities and the outdoors - support people to build skills and unlock confidence.
We use Scotland's outdoors and work in communities to deliver intensive personal development for people, at any stage in their life, struggling with issues such as involvement in the criminal justice system, long term unemployment, recovery from addiction, homelessness or risk of homelessness, isolation, and a history of trauma or harm.
- Criminal justice programmes focused on rehabilitation and reducing offending throughout Scotland
- Employability programmes for young people facing hardship and disadvantage in Scotland
- Programmes for ex-service personnel struggling with civilian life
- Personal development programmes that significantly improve people’s mental, emotional and physical wellbeing, relationships and use of local support and services
Our key areas of work
“The life that I now have is brilliant compared to what it was like. I thought I was a failure and that I was going to die in that horrible existence of addiction, prison, violence and fear.”
