Yesterday I was with Outfit Moray of whom I am the patron they had a get together at the lovely Newbold House in Forres to look towards the future. This was a great opportunity for us all to get together to look at affirming our values, focussing on our vision/mission and beginning to update our strategy as we move forward as one organisation. It was interesting to see how similar we are in our core values of life and what we can give to the organisation in the future, I am hoping for good health to be more pro active next year.
Outfit Moray is an award-winning charity and social enterprise delivering outdoor learning, adventure and nature exploration programmes which transform lives.
Founded in 2003, we have worked with over 14,000 children and young people; building confidence, self-esteem and resilience, providing positive role models and encouraging the acquisition of life skills and new experiences through challenge and positive risk taking.
We are a visionary, ambitious and passionate organisation committed to making a difference to the lives of others and particularly those who are vulnerable and disadvantaged.
Our unique approach to learning, education, training and development applies to all that we do, whether working one-to-one with children referred to us, running holiday and respite weeks for vulnerable children, outdoor learning and adventure programmes with schools, or activity sessions to improve health and well-being in adults.
We take a holistic approach to our work; founded on the principles of charity, care and compassion, building trust, valuing courage, patience and integrity, developing social skills and team work, respect for human dignity and taking a selfless approach to the needs of others. It is our aim to encourage positive growth: mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually, to provide hope for a better future, to improve happiness, health and well-being and to create a sense of life purpose.
Outfit Moray provides a supportive structure for a number of charitable and socially enterprising projects to flourish in line with our Vision and Mission, and in particular Earthtime and Bike Revolution. We apply our core values to these projects and actively promote them as part of our work in caring for others and our planet.

Newbold House, 111 St Leonards Road, Forres is an ideal venue set in 10 acres of its own grounds. I loved this place for the short time I was there, what a lovely place. They provided lunch for us and all their produce is either sourced locally or from their own walled garden. I had to leave sadly early as I had a funeral to attend but what a productive morning with so many people who want to help others, it was a privileged to be there.
Thanks to all for an informative and thought provoking morning.
