Venturing Out believe that everyone, no matter what their ability, has much to gain from experiencing outdoor activities. One of their core aims is to offer regular provision of Adventurous Outdoor Activity within the county of East Lothian for our disabled community.

Raising Attainment Outdoors
Venturing Out recognise that not all children excel in a classroom environment. They are delivering a pilot project funded by ELC Area Partnerships aimed at raising the attainment of primary aged children through a range of outdoor activities and exercises.
This programme is being delivered in partnership with ELC Outdoor Learning Service.
