Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Due to ongoing restrictions we’re not able to deliver any traditional Outward Bound Education residentials at the moment. This is a direct result of government guidance. But we’re actively making plans to get as many young people to benefit from Outward Bound safely as soon as possible.

Safety

Our long-standing reputation for safety is one of the most frequently stated reasons for using The Outward Bound Trust. We are referenced in our sector as the most experienced in our field. We pride ourselves on this and take our responsibilities seriously.

Our centres

We have six UK residential centres all in areas of outstanding natural beauty. Their location in some of the UK's wildest places is an essential part of us being able to deliver courses with a difference.

The role of the outdoors

Children and young people across the UK have had their lives turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic. The outdoors is vital for young people's recovery, resilience and wellbeing.
