Adventure Therapy provides outdoor and adventure-led activities for children and adults with unique health conditions, impairments or limitations. Conditions may include (but are not limited to) mental health conditions, physical disability, learning disability, life-limiting illnesses or life-changing conditions.
Depending on circumstances and resources, funding of our activities may also extend to the parents, siblings and carer of the person who directly benefits from our support.
Whilst our preference is professional referrals, you may self-refer if you are aged 18 or over or if you are the parent/guardian of a child or vulnerable adult. For personal referrals, we reserve the right to confirm with a persons' GP, hospital or specialist, that our activities would be beneficial and that the individual would be in a position to take part based on their age and any limitations due to their health condition.
In all cases, it is also vital that our associated instructor or activity provider is comfortable and satisfied that it is safe and practical for the individual to participate in our sessions.
Our charity supports children aged 8+ and adults in Devon and Cornwall and adults with learning disability in Somerset. If we could help you or someone you know, complete our referral form and start a new adventure, below.
We accept self-referrals or from a parent or guardian. To refer to our services personally, for your child or other person you have legal responsibility for (such as a vulnerable adult), please click here.
As part of social prescribing we actively encourage referrals from professionals, including GP Practices and Social Services. We also collaborate with other charities, schools, colleges and community organisations whose service users, students or clients may benefit from Adventure Therapy and the emotive experiences we provide.
