Situation

Venture and Falcon holidays provide opportunities for children and young people of all faiths or none from across the UK to explore the Christian faith while enjoying action-packed residential breaks: - Ventures are packed with fun activities, Bible talks and small group discussion. - School Ventures are short residentials for primary school pupils at CofE schools. - Falcons provide additional nurture, care and support for the most disadvantaged young people.

Solution

Our project brings a range of sustainable, key development and enrichment outcomes to children and young people, including those which contribute towards ‘helping children to achieve more’, tackling the gender gap in well-being between girls and boys, esteem and peer pressures. Feedback from those attending is analysed and leader feedback is similarly measured both qualitatively and quantitatively. We provide subsidies for those least able to afford to attend, so that cost is never a barrier.
