GalGael provides learning experiences anchored in practical activities that offer purpose and meaning.
We provide a space that serves as something of a safe harbour for those whose lives have been battered by storms such as worklessness, depression or addiction.
We offer a workplace that challenges, inspires and creates the conditions conducive to learning; a space where mistakes are not only made but owned as our best teachers, where issues are left at the door and new identities forged.
Are you up for the journey? Our Journey On programme seeks to reconnect people with the best within themselves through positive learning journeys grounded in practical activity.
Activities like working on producing our range of wooden products or working alongside crafts-folk to handcraft furniture, cooking in the kitchen, processing Scottish timber or helping out at a range of public events.Find out more>
Some have had it rougher, some have had it easier but we all know what we've been through in our lives and we're all in the same boat.
