Our fundraising team

The Fundraising Department currently raises around £6m a year to support the work of The Outward Bound Trust, predominantly to cover the cost of bursary supported places for disadvantaged young people to attend our powerful courses in the outdoors, and towards capital (building project) requirements across the Trust’s six centres.
