What is Brathay?
Brathay is a registered charity offering life-changing community programmes to children, young people and families in need.
We also run innovative outdoor learning self-development programmes for schools, community groups, companies and public sector organisations, specialising in outcomes and wellbeing.
We’re based in the Lake District and host iconic fundraising challenge events and offer tranquil room-only stays to public.
Everything we do operates as non-profit, working together as One Brathay to support our charity's mission to improve the life chances of those who need it most.
