We understand the power of travel and adventure to transform a child’s view of the world and their potential to succeed in it, to provide respite and improve health, education and wellbeing. We believe all young people should have the chance to have big adventures, make new friends, try new things and learn vital life skills.
Today, young people face many challenges. Financial hardship, homelessness, disability, long-term illness, bereavement, caring for a parent and other circumstances all limit children’s opportunities. We are here to reach and create new opportunities for those in the greatest need
We are taking enquiries from groups who are seeking support for a residential stay with YHA. All groups must be able to provide pastoral staff to accompany the young people or families. This ensures that groups get the support they need as they prepare for and then take their break.
We are currently taking enquiries from school groups in the Alternative Provision sector of education, along with schools who are interested in taking pupils on a residential break from primary school to secondary school.
