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!
