Outside the Box provides development support to groups and people across Scotland who want to make a difference in their communities.
We began in 2004. We are a small, independent charity and aim to work as a social enterprise.
We give practical support and enable people to learn the types of skills that are important both for establishing new ventures and for sustaining them.
We assist people to contribute on issues that are about how their community or how society works. For example, we support people to share their skills and experiences, work with others to develop community-based solutions to challenges they experience, and have their voices heard in policy.
We 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.
