Project background

The Falkland Stewardship Trust has been awarded £23,113 to draw up detailed plans for the "Woodlands on the Edge" project that will bring neglected and underused woodlands along the south side of the Lomond Hills Landscape Partnership area. A key element of the plan will comprise detailed proposals for an employability scheme providing support, advice, training, mentoring and apprenticeships to assist unemployed people to acquire forestry and woodland conservation skills. The scheme will be focused on 16-25 year olds and over 25s from disadvantaged groups who are re-skilling (e.g. armed forces veterans).
