It is the non-profit distributing, wholly owned subsidiary trading company of The Roses Charitable Trust .

The Roses Project

The Roses Charitable Trust (RCT) runs the Roses Project which delivers challenging, personal development outdoor activity courses for groups of marginalised young people. The Project works with young people aged 7-21 years. Our courses, which typically run for 5 days, are residential and based in Tavool House on the Island of Mull on the west coast of Scotland.

Many of the youngsters come from difficult home environments in areas experiencing acute deprivation and social exclusion. Often these experiences have a knock on effect to their own behaviour, happiness, health and well-being.

The aim of the courses is for the young people to have fun taking part in a range of motivational, challenging activities. These include coasteering, hill walking, camping, canyoning, abseiling, gorge walking and kayaking. The courses nurture personal qualities and life skills, explore life choices whilst spending time away from daily worries.

The aim of the Roses Project is to make a difference to the young people’s lives; increasing their confidence and self-esteem; teaching new skills and developing their employability potential with activities designed to progress their skills. They are offered the opportunity to reflect on their personal needs. They develop working relationships with their own group leaders resulting in increased support  when they return to their own communities. Their physical and mental health well-being is enhanced by their engagement in challenging tasks.
