Wilderness Journeys with Venture Trust
Venture Trust works with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people and adults within some of Scotland’s most marginalised communities to enable them to achieve a better future.
Venture Trust’s Living Wild project offers support to people with a history of involvement in the criminal justice system, enabling participants to address underlying issues, discover new skills and get their lives back on track. At Living Wild’s heart is a Wilderness Journey: 10 days of wild camping, canoeing, walking, abseiling and intensive personal support. Participants gain confidence and learn to see themselves in a new light, set achievable goals and make plans for a better future.
Funding from Whirlwind Charitable Trust will support a life changing Wilderness Journey for 11 participants in 2019.
