We are incredibly excited to announce that in partnership with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, UK Youth have been selected as a delivery partner for the second phase of the Adventures Away from Home Fund (AAFH.)

Following an incredibly successful first phase earlier in the year, we are now able to support more disadvantaged young people to access outdoor learning experiences at Avon Tyrrell over the coming months.

About the fund

This fully funded programme aims to give underrepresented young people aged 11-18 years (up to 25 years for SEND), who form part of an organised group, an unforgettable day visit or residential break with us in the New Forest.

Our team here at Avon Tyrrell are all passionate and fully committed to ensuring all young people have the opportunity to experience, learn and develop with us. From providing safe and comfortable accommodation and hot cooked meals to supporting individual personal development through a wide range of accessible adventure activities, our team will create a bespoke programme that works for you.

Day visits: A full day of activities and hot lunch.

2 Night residential: 2 nights accommodation, full board catering and a full activity programme.

All of our activities, along with the guidance of our qualified team, help support young people with developing life skills including improved communication, motivation, teamwork, resilience, building character and creating memories that last a lifetime, bringing outdoor learning to life.

Please Note: If your application is successful, we will discuss with you timings and activities to meet the needs of your group in more detail.
