Who would I be working for?

SU Scotland is a registered charity that aims to help all of Scotland’s children and young people explore the significance of Jesus Christ for their lives. 

Alltnacriche is a Christian residential activity centre run by SU Scotland, near Aviemore.  The centre has 58 beds and is set within a beautiful 17 acre estate.
