Past Projects

Creative Breaks

The hectic season in 2015, from May until October, saw us monitor over 300 carers and their cared-for out on the river.
Passengers were treated firstly to a lesson in boat driving at Victoria Dock, Dundee. Passengers later learned how to tie knots correctly and received a tour of the North Car Lightship. Passengers were then taken to the River Tay to ride the Badger and try to locate some of the many doplhins in the river.

This project was funded by Shared Care Scotland.

Young Start

Young Start trained prisoners aged 20-24 in vocational and transferable skills which enhanced CVs thus improving their chances of gaining employment. The qualifications provided the prisoners with the opportunity to take up paid work on safety boats and other commercial vessels once they have left prison. Forty-four prisoners from Castle Huntly were trained to a high standard where they achieved three internationally recognised qualifications.

Operated until the end of 2017 - Resourced by the Big Lottery Fund
