Providing outstanding development opportunities.


The Strides programme was created to assist with the charity’s beneficiaries’ personal development.
The programme has two main objectives:

  1. To give our Scotty Members an unfair advantage over their peers by providing access to first class work experience opportunities and mentoring.
  2. To provide financial assistance for development related activities ranging from education to sports.


Development grants available to beneficiaries include:

  • The Scotty Allowance: a small grant available to every Scotty Member, every year, to contribute toward to cost of activities such as school trips, swimming lessons, sports clubs or music lessons.
  • Scotty’s Driving School: for Members aged 17+ a small grant to cover the cost of driving lessons.
  • Scotty’s Higher Education Grant: older Members who may be about to turn 19 and leave the charity can apply for a higher education grant of £1,000 to contribute toward the cost of going to University.
  • The Super Grant: a one-off grant available in emergency situations or once in a life opportunities.
