The Roses Charitable Trust was established in 1992 with the aim of helping to develop young people's qualities skills, mental health and well being through challenging residential, personal development, outdoor activity courses.
The Trustees are most grateful to the Patrons and to the many Benefactors for their generous support which enables this small, but highly effective charity, to continue addressing issues of deprivation, integration and social exclusion in disadvantaged young people. Many are young carers who are trapped in their family situations so they are in need of respite and a challenge away from home. Others are from the white, black and ethnic urban communities where inter racial tensions and problems are particularly acute.
The groups are stretched and motivated in an enjoyable way during the courses run from Tavool House on the island of Mull on the west coast of Scotland. The range of activities includes abseiling, kayaking, camping, canoeing, swimming, nightline, rock climbing, team building, gorge walking, canyoning, navigation tuition, hill and coastal walking and surfing. The experience helps to develop social skills, self esteem and self identity. They gain confidence, conquer their fears, forget their worries and get to spend time with their peers.
The central objective of the Trust is to guarantee that this training continues to be available to those who need and want it. Whilst we ask that each member of a group raises a contribution we are left with the task of raising the remainder. This means raising sufficient funds to subsidise the cost of the courses so The Roses Charitable Trust seeks help from Charitable Benefactors.
