Branch Out

Ross AndersonWhat is Branch Out?

Branch Out has been developed in partnership with the Scottish Outdoor Education Centres. 

The programmme aims to enable school leavers and young people with autism to develop the qualities, skills, knowledge and experience they will need in the worlds of work, further study and adult life. 

Participants will take part in activities such as archery, crate climbs, woodland walks, shelter building, canoeing and rock climbing. We will incorporate activities that will promote teamwork and leadership. In addition to these activities there will also be at least one opportunity for the group to spend the night sleeping over at the outdoor centre.

Who is Branch Out for?

Branch Out is for young people aged 16-18. 

Where is it held?

Branch Out will take place at the Scottish Outdoor Education Centres at Broomlee. Occasionally activities may take place at other locations, but families will be informed of this in advance.
