Our CSR strategy is guided by our core values of respecting others and operating responsibly. We recognise the enormous contribution that our people make to the success of the business, and as such, we seek to promote opportunities for individual personal and professional growth. Our charitable support reflects this.
We are proud to be supporting of The Outward Bound Trust for the tenth year running.
The Outward Bound Trust is an educational charity that develops young people aged 11 to 19 years through learning and adventure in the wild. It works in partnership with schools, supporting effective transition and raising aspirations through to developing effective leaders and employees. The Trust delivers courses between three and 19 days long for young people in secondary education from six centres across the UK in Wales, the Lake District and Scotland. It strives to make powerful outdoor learning experiences accessible to as many young people as possible through charitable subsidies and a bursary scheme.
Martin Davidson, Scottish Director at The Outward Bound Trust, said: “Thanks to the support from corporate supporters such as Scott Group, last year over 70% of the 25,000 participants from across the UK received financial support from The Trust. Scott Group’s support helps us to reach those young people that have most to gain from outdoor education.”
