Funding Boost for Glasgow Team
We are thrilled that The Roberson Trust have pledged £39,000 to support our Glasgow Team by part funding an outdoor youth worker post for the next three years.
The OYW is a key member of a team tasked with delivering our long-term programme of support for disadvantaged young people through personalised support plans and an exciting range of outdoor learning opportunities. The programme helps young people find skills and build self-confidence to make a lasting change to their lives.
Glasgow Programme Manager, Donna Hegarty said: “We are hugely grateful to The Robertson Trust who’s funding will help us work with referral partners to identify young people most in need and enable us to deliver our 12 month programme around 70 young people. Following their ‘journey’ with Venture Scotland these vulnerable young people will improve their ability to make positive choices in life and develop their ability to realise their potential and improve their employability skills”.
