Charity description

Caberfeidh Horizons logo
Caberfeidh Horizons opened its doors in 2005 to provide training and work experience in the community for adults and young people with a learning disability, mental health and/or addiction problem and long term unemployed people.

We employ three full time and one part-time members of staff, work with a group of  50 volunteers and 11 volunteer Directors. We currently have a group of around 50 clients.

Very much at the heart of the local community, we work with and support other local charities, run two High Street shops (bookshop and charity shop), involve local schools and community organisations in our work and take part in many local events.

Caberfeidh Horizons runs two very successful shops on Kingussie High Street:

Our "First Class Second Hand Bookshop" provides an opportunity for community based workplace training, for young people and adults with learning difficulties and disabilities, with the aim of improving employability, ability to enter further education and social skills.

Our Charity shop generates funds to support our project work. The shop is staffed by an enthusiastic band of local volunteers and offers further opportunities for training and work experience.

We offer a number of different projects: 

Transition & Training Project
Health & Fitness
IT Training

In partnership with the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and Health and Happiness, the Wildlife Wombles work twice weekly sessions at the Highland Wildlife Park in nearby Kincraig where they assist the many visitors to the Park and help keep the Park clean and tidy by tidying up areas, brushing boardwalks and picking up litter.

The group are also involved in enrichment projects for the many animals at the Park - for example, making food balls for the red pandas and papier mache Easter eggs! 

The Wombles have also completed a 'Photographic year at the Park' timeline project documenting animals, plants, people, weather and the changing Highland seasons which forms an exhibition and the basis of a great film which you can watch at the link below:
