Charity: Bendrigg Trust
Bendrigg Trust specialises in delivering high quality adventure activity courses for disabled and disadvantaged people. We aim to promote inclusion, encourage independence and build self-confidence through the safe provision of adventurous activities. Everyday we see the impact of our adventure residential courses for our participants. It’s no secret that pushing yourself out of your comfort zone can work wonders for personal development. There are also a number of studies which show the benefits of being outdoors for mental health. People with additional needs, don’t often have the opportunity to experience outdoor adventure activities. So for them it’s no exaggeration to say that a trip to Bendrigg can be truly life changing. Family members, teachers or carers often attend a residential alongside the participant – they too can gain a huge amount from the experience and by seeing this person achieve through adventure it often changes their perception of just what the person is capable of.
