PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT TRAINING FOR SOCIALLY EXCLUDED AND VULNERABLE YOUNG PEOPLE

Cairngorm Outdoors Ltd is licensed under the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority and registered with the Care Commission.  We work with socially excluded and vulnerable young people, providing a wide range of adventure activities.  Our aim is to provide challenge, motivation and personal development for young people by devising and delivering individually tailored programmes of support and activity.  Each programme is different, designed to meet the individual’s needs, and is devised in consultation with the young person and other relevant agencies/individuals.  Contact with families and/or carers is promoted and can be facilitated where appropriate.  A support plan is prepared and placement progress reports provided as required.

The activities include

• Summer and Winter Mountaineering

• Ski-ing

• Inland and Sea Kayaking

• Raft Building

• Wild Camping and Survival Skills

• Leadership/Team Building Exercises

After a period of learning and consolidation, many of these activities can be combined into multi-day expeditions, travelling through some of the most remote and beautiful countryside in Britain. To complete such a challenge, individuals will have to display qualities of determination, resilience, commonsense and self reliance. If a young person shows interest in a particular activity, the instructors can develop that skill in order to enable him/her to undertake a National Governing Body Award. A variety of in-house learning opportunities are available, including computing, numeracy and literacy skills, bike maintenance, first aid, domestic and general life skills. Work experience may be possible with a local furniture maker and woodworking specialist.


The aim of Cairngorm Outdoors is to provide a comprehensive programme of personal development and training for young people, in order to enhance their confidence, resilience and self esteem. Young people are give the opportunity to experience an unfamiliar environment, face different challenges and develop new skills.
