Venture Trust believes no one should be left behind because they are struggling with adversity, inequality or vulnerability. That is why they are supporting people to gain the life skills, stability and confidence needed to reach their potential. At Venture Trust, they work to make a positive life possible for some of Scotland’s most vulnerable people across community justice, employability and wellbeing.
They support people in their local community and in the Scottish outdoors with learning and development. The outdoors offers an inherent challenge for individuals to reflect on beliefs, attitudes, and behaviours. With time and space away from influences at home, individuals can unlock skills and learn new, more positive, ways of approaching situations. At any stage in life, people can struggle. That is why Venture Trust focuses on the path to a positive future, without forgetting what led people to them. Many people they work with are surviving outside mainstream support, are unemployed, or they may have never been in employment. Most have faced trauma.
Venture Trust has the vision that everyone, irrespective of their past, can achieve their potential for a healthy, happy and fulfilling life. Their values underpin everything they do: with courage, care, curiosity and collaboration they help men and women across Scotland gain the life skills, stability and confidence needed to reach their potential and to live their best lives.
