Highland FEI: Involve and Inspire 2008 Project Report

Created by FEI Admin Scotland | Published 12.07.11

This project involved the Abriachan Forest Trust working with a variety of groups of vulnerable young people, participating in specific skill developing tasks within the community.  The groups helped construct a shelter with a permanent path leading to it, and a feature, wiggly, drystone wall, with associated skills training - providing facilities for the wider community to use and enjoy.  Participation in Skills not Spills mountain biking sessions provided essential diversionary interest.  Self-confidence and engagement levels were raised, fostering more positive attitudes, and developing new employability and life skills for these young people.
