The Outward Bound Trust
Charity Number SCO40341
Every year, The Outward Bound Trust takes more than 5,000 young people from all across Scotland, to climb mountains, sleep under the stars and brave the elements in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands. There, these young people, many who are from deprived areas, discover how to manage risk and reward, to build resilience and connect with nature. They learn to believe in themselves, develop self-confidence and they have fun. Never has the development of these attributes been more important than now.
9 in 10 young people need some financial help to attend an Outward Bound course. It is only through fundraising and the generosity of donors, that those who need it most are able to attend this life changing experience.
Freya aged 16 went to Loch Eil in the Scottish Highlands on a 14 Day Adventure. After attending a 5-day Outward Bound course with her school, she came back to build upon her experience as part of Scotland's Next Generation.
What is the long term impact?
The extensive evaluation that Outward Bound undertakes clearly shows that the courses have a very positive impact, with the increase in confidence transferred back to every day life. Please see the long term impact report.
