The Venture Trust
Venture Trust transforms the lives of people who, because of their complicated or chaotic backgrounds, are experiencing disadvantage, vulnerability or marginalisation.
"jsut back from VT, my time there was the most amazing and challening experience i have ever done in my life" - Participant
In 2011, we worked with over 850 participants - people who were struggling with complicated life circumstances such as being looked after by the state, offending, homelessness, drug and alcohol misuse, caring responsibilities and other complications in their lives.
We run intensive personal development programmes. What this means is we give people time, space and intensive support in wilderness environments. Here, we help people recognise what they need to change, then give them the confidence, motivation and tools they need to make those changes.
"Completing this course has made me look at my life back home and has made me think about what I really want in life. I am now going home with a full tool box of skills that I never had previously" - Participant
By tackling a range of physical, emotional and social challenges, participants are able to increase their aspirations, and to develop a range of skills for life, learning and work.
