Access to Adventure Programme

BF Adventure offers multi-activity days for disabled children and young
people (7 – 18yrs) in the form of either:-

  • Small peer groups
  • 1:1 sessions
  • Family days
  • Integration into our Holiday Adventure Days for children (7-12 years)

Access to Adventure will offer children and young people a chance to try out a variety of exciting challenges which could include abseiling, canoeing, archery, bush craft and a range of other activities whilst also developing new friendships, take part in new experiences and to have fun doing positive activities.

Days can also be arranged during school holidays and on weekends.  In some cases subsidies can also be provided for transport, lunch and specialised support staff.

 

1:1 or Group Activity Sessions

Half or full day sessions for those with higher support needs which are tailored so the pace, content and delivery style meet the needs of the learners with a variety of activities on offer. Additional includers can be arranged to support individuals if required.

Family Activity Days

An opportunity for families to take part in activities, have fun working together, reinforce communication and a “can do” attitude for all.

 Holiday Activities Days (7-11 year olds)

A fast paced, fun packed day taking part in  set activities within a bigger mainstream group. We are able to accommodate or provide an includer for your child

Activity Programme

We deliver any of the above sessions as a programme of activities which are co-produced with the learner and focus on set individual outcomes such as confidence, social skills, resilience and problem solving. We can provide reports measuring distance traveled and work closely alongside other professionals, making sure the learner is at the centre of everything we do.

 

Adult Provision

We provide regular activity sessions for adults with disabilities; these sessions can take place either as a half or full day (10-12pm/1-3pm for a half day or 10-3pm for a full day) and as a one off or a regular weekly session followed up with a report written by the instructor in order to evidence distance traveled and progression.

We can cater for 1:1 sessions at a charge of £75 (half day) and £150 (full day) or form a small peer group (if applicable).
