About the project:

The aim of this project is to train leaders with the skills necessary to ensure the future viability of our organisation in Gloucestershire, and through the up-skilling of leaders to be able to offer a broader range of activities to both current and new members, that will continue to divert young people away from getting involved in negative and destructive activities. The activities will include training in paddle sports, expedition and outdoor leadership, DofE leadership skills and D1 qualifications to allow young leaders to drive minibuses. We plan to achieve this through ongoing and regular communication with all leaders and the signposting of all relevant training opportunities with local providers and others. We have identified the training providers who can cover all of the training needs and will be working with them to accommodate our requirements.
