Change that leads to better lives

Outside the Box, Partner organisation

Outside the Box

Outside the Box provides independent development support to groups and people across Scotland who want to make a difference in their communities.

They are a small, independent charity and aim to work as a social enterprise, giving practical support and enabling people to learn the types of skills that are important both for establishing new ventures and for sustaining them.

They assist people to contribute on issues that are about how their community or how society works – such as when older people want to offer their skills and experience to families and young people – as well as on matters that are specific to their own circumstances.

They encourage people to think of themselves and other people as citizens, rather than as recipients of services or as people who are restricted by a particular description or label.

Over the years have learned about the issues that affect the thousands of people and hundreds of groups with whom we’ve worked and about what sorts of community development support work best in different situations.
