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.
Kinlochlovin’ was founded in September 2015, by members of the local community who wanted to make young people’s experience of education as interesting, beneficial and varied as possible. Kinlochleven High School was concerned about young people missing out on sporting, cultural and outdoor activities in education due to rural isolation and budget cuts.
Kinlochlovin’ works in partnership with the school to support the running and funding of activities. In order to help with funding Kinlochlovin’ pupils volunteer with Kinlochlovin’ running their own enterprises. All profits raised from these enterprises are put into the activities which Kinlochlovin’ supports within the school.
