Social Justice and Heritage Themes
This targets prisoners from SPS Castle Huntly (Scotland's only open prison which is seven miles from our base). We provide training to take them through three internationally recognised maritime qualifications plus a basic diesel engine maintenance course, then provide volunteering roles for successful participants. For the duration of their sentence they assist Taymara's training team as volunteers, supporting us in managing the development of their peers, both in practical work with us and academic support to their peers in the prison. We then select a group whose credentials we seek to upgrade in order that they may become qualified instructors. On release all participants will become part of our Sea Change - Ex Offenders programme where we aim to help them find suitable volunteering opportunities.
North Carr Lightship
Taymara’s NC100 Project is focused on
restoring the National Historic Ship “North Carr”, the last lightship
ever based in Scotland. Supported by a growing group of
multi-disciplined volunteers, the Project will focus on restoring the
vessel to her former glory whilst integrating new facilities for the
Taymara Projects Teams and local groups within the vessel. Working in
conjunction with a number of Groups across Scotland, the Team hopes to
secure a berth alongside HMS Unicorn in the dry dock to the east of Victoria Harbour in Dundee.
