Residentials are a great leveller, providing a new environment where participants are equal and existing barriers and hierarchies can be broken down.

The extended time period and intensity of a residential experience is key to developing relationships and learning opportunities. Participants can create a new community away from their normal distractions that gives them time and space to address their goals within a supportive environment. The memorability of the visit and the shared experiences of participants help to maintain the sense of community back home.

We have three residential centres in Cumbria: Brathay Hall in Ambleside, Low Bank Ground close to Coniston Water and Hinning House in the Duddon Valley.
