Legally a charity, founded in the 1990s, "but more a community of creative people, who come together to co-operatively meet some of our needs; our shared need for acceptance, to learn and contribute our creativity".
"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. These learning journeys are enriched by wider activities like boat building, rowing, rural skills, community and creative projects." (web site)
Those helped by GalGael have often been casualties of social malaise or economic deprivation, who rediscover positive personal and community identity through engaging with the work offered.
