Hot off the press!

We work with young people in their home communities experiencing daily from bullying, loneliness, anxiety, drug & alcohol issues, despair, self-harming and suicidal thoughts. It costs just £250 to bring one of them to visit us in the Lake District for an immersive and life-changing residential experience.
