How individuals can help support us

Through your donation or legacy we can carry on our work supporting underprivileged young people across the UK.

Our work has a powerful impact on developing skills for school, work and life, and improving social and emotional wellbeing. Your donations are helping underprivileged young people directly, increasing their self-confidence and ability to trust in others, and equipping them with the tools to make a real success of their lives.

Ways you can help us carry on supporting underprivileged young people

By making a donation, you can immediately have an impact on the life of a young person. There are many ways you can donate to us, including considering a regular monthly or annual donation, through payroll giving or by donating online. Or download our pdf donation form and contact us direct.

A legacy is the gift of personal property through a will by you to the people and causes close to your heart. A legacy is something you will be remembered for when you're gone.

Last year 25,000 young people attended a life-changing Outward Bound course. 73% of these young people would not have been able to attend without the generous support of our donors.

By leaving a gift in your will to the Trust you will be offering the next generation of young people the opportunity to change their lives on an Outward Bound outdoor experience in the future.

If you would like to leave a legacy gift, our registered address is:

The Outward Bound Trust
Hackthorpe Hall

Registered charity no: 1128090 in England and Wales; no: SC040341 in Scotland.

To speak to someone in our fundraising team about leaving a legacy gift, please contact Josh Bone via email or call 020 3301 6491.

Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a positive way of commemorating a life, whilst giving the opportunity for a young person to make a change in their own life by supporting them to develop their skills and abilities.

You can do this by setting up a memorial fund online through JustGiving, or by getting in touch with us.
