Venture Trust is an organisation effective in supporting vulnerable people to make sustainable life changes, overcoming barriers such as addiction, homelessness, isolation, long term unemployment, and involvement with the criminal justice system, to name a few.
We work with ex-military (no matter the length of service or training), including territorial and veterans across Scotland.
We achieve good results through our three-stage personal development programmes, and early stage employability support services, which help individuals to develop the confidence, motivation, aspiration, and core life skills they need to stabilise and move forward positively to achieve their goals. In many cases this will include working towards education, training, volunteering and employment.
Our programmes and support services are free, and each one is tailored to individuals with a specific range of issues. We are seeking appropriate clients that fit the criteria below from your area:
- Individuals aged 16+ with armed forces experience/training, no matter how brief (incl. veterans) struggling with civilian life or in their transition
o Please see our armed forces specific programme: Positive Futures
- Individuals aged 16+ with armed forces experience/training (incl. veterans), specifically especially those with offending/community justice involvement
o Please see our criminal justice programme which includes armed forces specific courses: Living Wild
