Precious Time Together

Our award winning family courses are a wonderful way for families with a disabled member to spend quality time together.

They provide the opportunity to :

  • Spend time together as a family and make precious memories trying adventurous activities include climbing, canoeing, caving & cycling.
  • Time to socialise and meet other families.
  • Enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings of the Lake District & Yorkshire Dales National Parks.

“It was such a positive experience! We felt so at home, the staff volunteers and trainees were inspirational and encouraging. It made you feel at ease and confident. I am so glad we know about Bendrigg!

We couldn’t fault the facilities, they were excellently laid out, the lounge was a great place to socialise and share what we had been doing during the day. Very disabled friendly with a fantastic view!

Family Day Activities

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and our regular residential services being unable to resume until later in 2021, we know families want to spend time outdoors together having fun, and so Bendrigg are offering some subsidised Family Day Activities for families with a disabled member.

Day activities will run from 9.30am-4.30pm and could include a selection of activities such as canoeing, cycling, sensory room, archery, zip wire, orienteering, sensory swing and tube slide. Activity availability depends on a number of factors so not all activities may be available on each day. After booking, one of our Tutors will be in touch with you to discuss your individual requirements and suitable activities.

To ensure that we support as many people as possible booking is limited to one day per family. Please book your slot using our booking link below and we will be in touch to find out more details about your family (number of people, ages, needs etc.)
