Welcome to THE FORRES OSPREY TRUST
Building a Brighter Future for All
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Inspired by a life-changing event, THE FORRES OSPREY TRUST was established in 1973 to provide free transport to the elderly, infirm and disabled including children of Forres and its environs.
RAF Kinloss provided the first vehicle in 1973 and 39 Engr Regt maintain a connection today with the Trust by providing assistance in the running and administration aspects of the Charity. Over the years, we have been working hard to improve the lives of those in need. Here you can learn more about who we are and what we do.

Here I sit in my chair
Pulling my fingers through my hair,
Wondering what the day will bring,
Waiting for the doorbell to ring.
The people around me I love and care,
But sitting here I do despair.
The day has come when out I get,
For a run in a bus I won’t forget,
We're off to the Cabrach for a dram you see,
A place in the hills I’ve yet to be.
Trudging along with sights to see,
Meeting new friends just like me.
Lets go friends said with gust,
Thank you OSPREY TRUST
What we do
We transport the elderly, disabled and infirm on outings site seeing day trips, shopping trips or any other activity as defined by their groups and carers. This gives them rejuvenation, fresh air and a better quality of life that they would not normally have access to. They can now enjoy the finer side of life.
Please ask yourself.
Do you know of anyone who would benefit from this service?
Do you have a friend or relative in need of time out from the house?
Do you know someone who knows someone who needs others company out with your own?
The Forres Osprey Trust provides a service that takes these people for day trips and various other outings.
