The Outward Bound Trust is an educational charity that uses the outdoors to help develop young people from all walks of life. Through the generosity of its donors, they are able to run adventurous and challenging outdoor learning courses that equip young people with valuable skills for education, work and life helping them become more confident, more effective and more capable at school, college and in the workplace.
The Adventure Fund has been developed specifically to help support young people aged 11-19 to achieve their life-goals and experience their very own Outward Bound summer adventure. Made possible by the help and support of generous donors and corporate partners, the fund can offer up to 50% funding towards any of The Outward Bound Trust's 7 or 19 day summer adventures.
There are also a number of more specific grants to help young people access The Outward Bound Trust's 19-day Skills for life Award:
