This project offered new skills and inspiration to individuals and groups within the local community, including enhancing employability and life skills for young job seekers and adults experiencing long-term unemployment.

The project, Learning in a Heritage Landscape – Transforming Work, was rooted in Scott’s passion for the outdoors and its health benefits. The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and LEADER, a European funding programme that supports rural community and business projects.

The project encompassed activities based on outdoor learningemployability and skills, and health and wellbeing. The success of the project led to The Abbotsford Trust being awarded the John Muir Award Provider Certificate. This recognises the partnership between the organisations as well as the Trust's continued commitment to delivering meaningful and valuable learning opportunities.

The project was funded by LEADER and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
