Inspiring Change for Charities in an Exclusive Space

We know the importance of being in the right creative space to bring out the best ideas, inspire colleagues, and provide the environment for collaborative, creative visioning. Being somewhere different and getting out of the office, allows the mind to open up and encourage fresh perspectives.

Bringing colleagues together to work through challenges, discuss options, and plan actions in a distraction-free zone promotes open communication and a safe space to explore options and encourage innovative thinking. Beware the stunning views from Ardoch could be a big distraction.

Ardoch is proud to host different types of organisations and has extensive experience working with charities, providing them with a unique space to help their teams think differently and reach higher and further than they ever thought possible.

If you’re a registered charity and would like to inspire your team with an overnight stay or a day meeting, Ardoch may be the perfect venue for you. Set in 133 acres of private land with spectacular views over Loch Lomond, Ardoch provides plenty of opportunities to take your discussions outdoors and experience the stunning landscape and country air.

In the spirit of Ardoch’s history and ethos, we are delighted to offer charitable venue hire rates to UK registered charities that can provide a charity number. Some educational institutions could also benefit from the unique space and setting at Ardoch and our special charitable status offer.  

Exclusive use at Ardoch means your charity would have sole occupancy and the undivided attention of the venue and staff, allowing for an uninterrupted and focused environment. A change of scenery and a break from routine can often spark fresh and innovative ideas. When surrounded by the relaxed setting of Ardoch, team members can be inspired to think outside the box and approach challenges in a different way.

Ardoch has excellent facilities to meet all needs – high-speed broadband, multiple meeting rooms with projectors and monitors, stationery and flip charts, parking, and a car charging point available. If you want to take things closer to nature, we have local trails and can put you in touch with activity providers.  

Several charities including CHAS and Cyrenians have chosen Ardoch as their venue of choice for team building and corporate events. Earlier this year CHAS revisited its purpose, values, and ambition at Ardoch. Bringing colleagues together from across the charity in such a unique space, helped CHAS explore different perspectives to create one unified ambition and define its purpose and values.

Iain McAndrew, Director of Income Generation and Engagement led the creative brainstorming days at Ardoch, he knows the benefits of being at Ardoch “We were delighted to spend time at Ardoch to finalise our purpose and values. Ardoch is a place you have to experience. It lends itself to creativity and inspiration. For CHAS, our purpose and values underpinned our new people strategy. The strategy which will help us create a culture to attract and retain the best people so we can continue delivering an outstanding experience of care for dying children and their families.”

In the fast-paced world of charity work, effective communication, collaboration, and team-building are essential for success. We know many charities operate on tight budgets and we’re proud to offer a special rate to charitable organisations to provide a unique space for them to be inspired.

By booking Ardoch for your team gathering or corporate event, you contribute to a charitable cause and add purpose to your team event. Ardoch operates as a unique profit with purpose, exclusive use venue, building a sustainable source of income for CHAS, with profits generated going to the charity.

If you’re looking for a unique venue to bring your team together in the first quarter of next year, please do get in touch as we have some availability for bookings in January to March 2024.
