Outward Bound Bursaries
Every year the Chief Constable in partnership with the Gloucestershire Outward Bound Association sponsors a group of young people to attend a week long Outward Bound course at Aberdovey, Wales.
The aim of the Outward Bound Bursary is to provide an opportunity for young people to develop their potential and to recognise the positive contribution many of them make to their communities.
If you are a school, youth group or youth organisation including connexions and youth offending services and you have any young people who you believe would benefit the course and fit the criteria below, please do not hesitate to use the contact details below.
Nominations should include people:
- Aged 14 to 19 years old and reasonably fit.
- Who are at risk of being socially excluded or may lack appropriate adult support and have low self esteem and little confidence, (their peers may be involved in offending behaviour) or,
- Who have shown great commitment or courage by setting up or running local youth/community activities or dealing with a serious or long term situation.
- Offending behaviour will not be rewarded. Those who have been in trouble with the police should have been dealt with for a minor matter and a suitable period of time should have elapsed since the offence.
Should you wish to know more about the scheme or would like to nominate an individual please ring 101 and ask for PC Nicki Dannatt or email email@example.com.
