Why should your organisation choose to support OYT Scotland?
Simply knowing that your support is making a difference to a young person’s life might be enough to make you sponsor OYT Scotland. But we understand that there are commercial reasons too:
Case Study: RBS Skills and Opportunities Funding and Adam & Company
In 2016, RBS Skills and Opportunities Fund supported three voyages of young people from Argyll and Bute, Highland and South Lanarkshire. 30 young people and 6 group leaders took part in week long residential voyages.
Mr Graham Storrie, MD of Adam & Company met the South Lanarkshire group on their last day of the voyage. Adam & Company is a subsidiary of The Royal Bank of Scotland and caters for the needs of private bank customers based in the United Kingdom. Mr Storrie is on the Royal Bank of Scotland Board which distributes funding for charities in Scotland. He explains “We were really impressed with the work that OYT Scotland carries out with young people, and we agreed to sponsor these voyages. I was delighted to be invited to spend some time with the OYT Scotland team and meet some of the young people at the end of their voyage to hear first-hand about the amazing work that OYT Scotland does and the difference it makes for those who are fortunate enough to take part. The volunteers and sea-staff do a fantastic job in really making the voyages a positive and impactful experience for the young people who go sailing with Ocean Youth Trust Scotland. We look forward to working with them again in the future.”
