Trusts and Foundations

Over 80 trusts and foundations annually, of all sizes and interests, support our work with young people. Grants from these trusts and foundations enable over 1,900 young people a year, from underprivileged backgrounds and from across the UK, to benefit from an Outward Bound course.

These young people, aged 9-24, leave our courses with improved confidence and resilience, which for many, translates to greater engagement with, and success in learning. When it comes to points of transition in their lives, our courses leave young people better prepared to achieve their goals and enable them to develop the independence and ability to flourish in new environments.
