A Movement For Change
Bendrigg Trust is more that just a charity, it’s a movement for change, for the inclusion of disabled people in the world of adventure activities and beyond. For over 40 years, we’ve been making a life changing impact on the lives of disabled and disadvantaged people.
In order to continue making adventure accessible to all, we need fundraise over £350,000 per year. This is where the support of corporate partners can make a huge difference.

Although our centre is based in Cumbria, we have supporters all over the UK. We are a leader in our field and many people look to us for advice and expertise.
Staff engagement, fundraising & volunteering opportunities

Bendrigg sign up for places in several Charity Challenge Events throughout the year such as The Great North Run, The Kiltwalks, Keswick/Coniston to Barrow Walks – giving your company many exciting ways to challenge yourself whilst supporting us.
We can also provide rewarding volunteering opportunities at Bendrigg so that your staff can experience working with the people their donations are impacting or as a group working on one of our many site projects.
