Donations raised in our 2022 Women of Achievement Appeal will go towards the incredible work that Outward Bound do in supporting children across Scotland.
 

The data and analysis clearly shows that COVID has exacerbated the problems facing young people in Scotland:
 

  •  1 in 4 young people live in poverty

  •  4 in 5 don't get enough daily exercise

  •  5 in 10 feels stressed or anxious

  •  there is an overwhelming rise in health and wellbeing concerns

  • and an increasing attainment gap, especially for vulnerable children.
     

Outward Bound aims to equip young people with a stronger sense of self-belief, able to cope better with stressful situations and interact more positively with others.  More than ever, in these times, young people desperately need these attitudes, skills and behaviours to make positive changes in their lives.  Every year, over 5,000 young people want to come to Outward Bound Loch Eil.  They're from 150 schools and youth organisations from all over Scotland and 90% of participants need some financial help to attend.  Through fundraising this amazing charity raises money to support those who need it most.   

 

We would be incredibly appreciative if you would consider donating something towards this year’s Appeal.

Thank you from Martin Davidson, Director of Outward Bound Scotland:

"All of us at Outward Bound are incredibly thankful to have been selected as your charity of the year.  2021 is our 80th anniversary and the demand for our services has never been greater than when we were were founded in the midst of WWII.  Then the need was to save young men's lives at sea.... today it is to help young people develop  the essential life skills to help them bounce back from a year like no other.  Your support will directly benefit disadvantaged young people in Scotland, allowing them to take part in a life-changing outdoor learning and adventure programme.  Our programmes are proven to enable young people to thrive in education, employment and throughout their lives.  Life has been truly limited for them during this pandemic, thanks to you, many more young people will realise that their future does not have to be limited too."
