Who we are:

Kinlochlovin’ is a constituted social enterprise and OSCR registered charity which has been set up in order to support all young people in the Kinlochleven High School catchment area to participate in enhancing activities to promote health and wellbeing, social inclusion and social justice.

We aim to support vulnerable and disadvantaged young people living in an area that has been identified to have pockets of multiple deprivation to have the support they need to increase their chances of a positive destination.

By engaging with Kinlochlovin’ the young people will be supported in their development of enterprise, self-sufficiency and independence. This will enable them to become effective contributors in the Kinlochleven, Ballachulish, Glencoe and Duror communities.

What we do:

We run extra curricular enterprise activities for the pupils to attend free of charge. The pupils have set up their own enterprise groups to help raise money to support additional extra curricular activities such as Duke of Edinburgh. They make numerous products from these groups such as soaps, candles and postcards. They even have a nail bar and a healthy cafe. Although we can sell the products and provide their services within the school the pupils are keen to get out more in the local community.

The benefits of a mobile shop:

The mobile shop which has been named Beyonce would be a great chance to expand into the wider community . Also the rennovation of the caravan into a shop is a great opportunity to learn new skills. A mobile shop would really allow us to ensure our enterprise education is up and running and allow Kinlochlovin' to become sustainable. Our young people will be more active in their business activities and hence their confidence, skills and knowledge will develop greatly. Also the profits raised which would be invested back into Kinlochlovin' will allow us to provide more opportunties for young people from training to trips, removing poverty and rural isolation as barriers to participation.
