Details
We have been working with the Foyer Federation for over ten years to develop this programme.

Transitions to Independent Living is a personal development programme designed to help people experiencing homelessness to unlock and make the most of their talents – developing confidence and employability, increasing their ability to access local services and establishing sustainable lifestyles. It is regularly proven to better equip participants with the skills and attributes needed to access employment, education or training, as well as offering a catalytic shift in attitude and perspective that helps participants plan their move into independent accommodation.

Participants travel to the Scottish Highlands from across the UK to take part in wilderness personal development journeys which offers safe and supportive space to reflect and develop. Participants leave the journey with a plan setting out their future ambitions and the pathway to achieving them which they carry out with ongoing support provided by their keyworkers in partnership with Venture Trust.
