Adventure For All
The activities we provide during a residential are dependant on the aims for your course. For some people they just want to get away from the stress of everyday life to have lot’s of fun, for others it’s about overcoming fears to build self confidence, and for some it’s about being away from home and building their independence.
One thing all of these aims have in common?! They can be achieved through a Bendrigg Trust Residential.

See It In Action!
Many of our participants will be told on a regular basis what they CAN’T do, but were here to tell (and show) them what they CAN do. Guided by our experienced staff, people of all abilities are able to set their own challenges in a safe and encouraging environment.
