Murton Trust
Address: Arbroath Road, Forfar
DD8 2RZ
Locality:
Long Business Description:

Murton Trust manages a thriving nature reserve, visitor farm and tea room, on the outskirts of Forfar.  Murton provides a unique environment in which children, young people and adults can learn and develop skills for life. We wish to enrich people’s lives by using our site as an educational tool that has a positive impact on all ages.

 

As a Scottish charitable organisation with a dual purpose, situated on a former sand and gravel quarry, Murton Trust manages and enhances the natural heritage on the 100 acre site and currently utilises the landscape to provide opportunities for young people from Angus and Dundee (aged 14-19) who are disengaged from formal education, to gain meaningful vocational qualifications or work experience in hospitality and land based skills.
Murton Trust is a Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) accredited vocational training centre, our education programmes make significant differences to the futures of challenged young people.  We support those currently at school and those who have left school with no positive destination who are at risk of future social and employment exclusion, as a consequence of little or no school achievements.
We also operate Murton Tots Outdoor Playgroup throughout term time, working with pre-school children in an outdoor setting introducing them to the benefits of playing outdoors and experiencing nature at an early age.
Since opening 11 years ago, the nature reserve has become a hidden gem, teaming with wildlife including otters. The 80 acre nature reserve flourishes with diverse habitats; lochs, wetlands, woods, wild flower meadows, and nesting sites for sand martins. An abundant array of wetland and wading birds including Little Ringed Plovers a local biodiversity priority species are thriving. The management and design of the site mean paths and seating afford views, and provide access to nature without encroaching nesting sites or damaging habitats. The visitor farm and tea room have grown in popularity and are firmly established as a tourist destination, featuring in the list of top 20 places to visit in Angus.  Murton recognises the importance of tourism to its future sustainability and has become a key player in the Angus Tourism Cooperative established across the county by tourist attractions, hospitality businesses and accommodation providers.

Family Mediation

Many families experience challenging times. Conflict is a part of life and it can arise for a number of reasons. Mediation can be helpful in any family situation where there is a problem or conflict that family members aren’t able to resolve, especially if those involved are struggling to talk to each other and can’t seem to find a good way forward. Specifically, if you are separating, getting a divorce, or dissolving a civil partnership or if you have been bringing up your children with an ex-partner you may be finding it difficult to manage all the practical arrangements around the care of the children. This can be very difficult if you are feeling hurt, confused or angry.  Family mediators can help here as they are specially trained to support separated parents or any family members deal constructively with things such as:

improving clear communication between parties
reducing/resolving conflict
wider family issues causing a fall-out
contact arrangements for the children
financial and property matters in relation to separation or divorce

 

Child Contact Centres (operating in Arbroath)

As long as it is safe, children benefit from having as many loving and supportive family relationships as possible and especially their parents.  Some parents can find it very difficult to agree how their children should share their time between them, for a variety of reasons. Parents can have real difficulty trusting each other, communicating and agreeing arrangements and conflict can be high. In some cases there may be risks concerning the welfare of the children.

 

Child Contact Centres are similar to a nursery/after school care setting in that they are safe, child friendly, staffed and neutral places. There are certain rules that apply which all focus on the children who use the centres, and are for their benefit. The difference is that child contact centres are places where children can spend time with a parent or any other family member (for example siblings or grandparents) where otherwise this would not be possible.

 

Counselling and Therapies (in Dundee)

Counselling helps children and young people talk about their thoughts and feelings about changes they may be experiencing in their life due to parental separation, divorce, moving into/living in a blended family or any other family relationship issues. We offer confidential appointments to 8 to 18 year olds whose parents do not, or no longer live together or where the child lives in a blended family. Our focus is on the family transition or parental relationship difficulties impacting on the child or young person.

 

Relationship Counselling is available to adults (couples or individuals) who experience relationship problems and would like to understand themselves better or work alongside their partner to jointly explore any difficulties they may be experiencing.

 

Having an active healthy sex life is important in most intimate relationships. Sexual Relationship Therapy offers help with sexual difficulties in our relationships. It is offered to individuals as well as couples, in opposite or same sex relationships who have concerns about or are experiencing a sexual difficulty.

Locality:
Long Business Description:

We are a small, registered Charity, SCO34175. Our Objectives are to provide an inclusive and supportive environment for families including those youngsters who have a disability, special need or culture needs. We provide a meeting place, usually once a month, so people can get together for the purpose of mutual support and encouragement in their fostering tasks and to organising activities and social events. We offer all youngsters new opportunities and good experience through our activities and day trips. We do this through fundraising and the children help to do this. We try to give the most Vulnerable Children in our area New, Good Experiences. The children we support have experienced many different disadvantages, Neglect which has resulted in the children not growing or reaching their milestones as their peers have. Lack of opportunities including hobbies and school trips due to birth parents poverty resulting in poor self-esteem and feelings of exclusion, Lack of social skills resulting in poor ability to mix with social groups, mix in general public and have appropriate behaviours. Lack of encouragement and praise which would limit their ability to try new activities.

Through trying new experiences and activities the children will learn new physical and social skills. They will gain the development of motor skills and stimulation of mental ability. This is to be done in a controlled environment that they feel safe in, enhancing their self-esteem and their will to go on and try more new experiences. In addition to this it will stimulate their imagination and creative ability as they will experience, hear, see and feel things they haven’t before. The children bond with their carers during our activities, also allowing them to socialise with other children in the same situation.
