Situation

The project involves working with young people with various disadvantages, ranging from young carers taking on family responsibilities which deprive them of a childhood, to youngsters with severe physical and learning difficulties, to people with mental health and social problems.

Solution

During their stay the youngsters undergo a combination of challenging physical activities plus creative and self development workshops covering career choices, preparation for work, behaviour and building relationships. Based at our centre, the young people benefit from fully qualified and highly experienced instructors, taking part in activities including kayaking, open sea canoeing, paddle surfing, rock climbing, abseiling and walking.
