information SERVICE DETAILS

Living Wild supports individuals on Community Payback (and other criminal justice orders*) who want to make positive and sustained changes that can lead to a move away from offending.

After an assessment period we offer regular community-based outreach support wrapped around a 10-day Wilderness Journey usually in the highlands of Scotland. Through intensive learning and personal development individuals will consolidate their new skills, boost confidence, motivation and aspirations. This will allow individuals to tackle complex circumstances and patterns of behaviour and tackle re-offending and help with rehabilitation.

Living Wild is for men and women aged 16-40.

Our programmes provide support for up to 9 months helping individuals to make and sustain connections to services and employment, education, training or volunteering opportunities within their communities.

*These include Drug Treatment and Testing Orders, Restriction of Liberty Orders, Home Detention Curfews, Structured Deferred Sentences (SDS) – Diversion from Prosecution- parole/voluntary throughcare or parole.

** Venture Trust does not currently work with registered sex offenders or those subject to Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA).
