BF Adventure is a Cornish charity so by joining us, you will also be ticking the CSR box. We work with ~ 4,000 young people a year, of whom 500 face multiple disadvantages including rurality and poverty. Over 200 receive specialist long term support from the charity to face learning and/or physical disabilities, behavioural challenges, mental ill health and other issues associated with Adverse Childhood Experiences. We use three elements: Trauma Informed Child Development, using Outdoor Education and Green Spaces and Youth Work. Research shows the importance of these approaches and we see the powerful impacts these have on those we support.
Cornwall is one of the poorest counties in the UK, with 30k people living in poverty and a large and growing proportion of 16-17 year olds not in education. There’s a strong link between poverty, child abuse and neglect and our mission is to support children and young people so they can achieve better life outcomes and reverse the impact of poverty. Our recent Social Impact Report shows the powerful impacts we have on young people’s lives – 100% of young people told us that we’ve helped them and that they’d recommend us to a friend. Every parent/referrer also said that we’d had a positive impact on their child/pupil.
Steph was referred to us having been out of school for 8 months. She suffered from high anxiety and would self-harm. She had experienced lots of trauma with the death of a close friend, had a turbulent home life and suffered from alopecia through stress. When she joined us, she engaged well in the activities, learning to recognise her achievements. She also made a friend who she maintained contact with. When we followed up 6 weeks after the sessions, she had returned to mainstream school. Her hair has also begun to grow back. Steph said she learned that “I’m more confident than I think I am.”
