Support for children
We support children from 8 years old. We encourage time spent as a family, creating special memories in the outdoors and travelling that journey together, with parents and siblings. Activities which are new and exciting, unique and, vitally, fun!
For older children we offer similar opportunities, but also look to explore that adventurous spirit, with parents or carers and our qualified and experienced activity instructors, ensuring the right equipment is in place to assist along the way.
Through our referral scheme, we work with young people and parents to discover the activities which will be of the most benefit and the most suitable, in relation to a young person's health condition.
We believe in the ability to take part and we actively encourage young people to spend time in the outdoors and participate in adventurous activities.
Our charity only works with qualified and experienced providers, who can support your child or children on their adventure and be there to teach, guide and assist when required. Whether that's spending time in the sea and surfing a wave with siblings, kayaking an inland waterway or mountain biking along a forest trail.
Where possible, we utilise specialist equipment which enables your child to spend time with family in the outdoors. For example, a bespoke wheelchair which provides access to the beach, so your family can join in and share the experience or a recumbent cycle, which means your child can enjoy the fun and excitement of cycling together. The simplest of activities which, whilst straightforward for some, can seem like an impossible task without the correct equipment in place, for others.
If it is beneficial to a child's wellbeing, we may meet the cost of an activity for the whole family.
As a charity, we aim to make things as easy as possible and alleviate concerns and frustrations - helping your children to discover the outdoors and the therapeutic benefits it can bring, with the right guidance and equipment to make it possible.
