New Forest Activity Bursaries

Our aim is to give everyone the same opportunities to Experience, Learn and Develop. For this reason UK Youth offers a bursary programme for groups of young people to be able to access outdoor learning opportunities at Avon Tyrrell.

If you need assistance towards funding your visit, or for specific individuals within your group, please do apply and we will do all that we can to help you. 

The money available in our bursary fluctuates month on month so sadly we are not able to say yes to every application, or always offer the full amounts requested, but we always try and do all we can.


Taking The Next Step:

Contact our Customer Experience Team on 01425 672347 and a member of our team will be able to check availability and provisionally book dates for you.

Complete our Bursary Application form 

Your provisional booking will then be held until a decision on funding is made.

Please feel free to add any supporting material to your application


"Avon Tyrrell is an amazing resource, all staff are professional and supportive of the Kids group, they are happy to listen to and take guidance from Kids staff to ensure that every young person has a great time.  We love coming here and look forward to coming again this year."

(KIDS, 2020)  

"This will live in the mind of the young people for years to come as they all live in supported accommodation they often struggle to look after themselves and do not have sufficient food. They really appreciated three meals a day and clean bedding to sleep in. These three days away provided them with some respite from the difficulties they encounter in everyday life." 


"A huge thank you to you, all the staff and funders who so generously supported our morning at Avon Tyrrell on 4 Sept. Children had an amazing time and parents were delighted to see them get involved and blossom doing activities that they would not normally get a chance to do.  We kicked off with High Ropes and climbing which really bought the children together and working as a team. It was wonderful seeing them support and encourage each other across the highest of ropes and applaud each achievement no matter how large or small."

Bursary Feedback

"I’m writing to show our appreciation to all the support that went in to organising  our visit. The instructors were warm, friendly and very accommodating, as were the guys 'on call’ that provided us with a wheel chair to aid a child with exploring the beautiful grounds. I would also like to say a special thanks for the generosity with awarding us the £1000 bursary. It was the first time we’ve managed to get the whole group together and seeing them all happy and fully involved was a real pleasure. Thank you."
