BF Adventure supports vulnerable children through Covid-19

BF Adventure’s charitable services remain open to support vulnerable children and young people, whose challenges, including poverty, mental ill-health and other complex barriers, have been compounded by Covid-19. The pandemic has seen a surge in domestic violence, loneliness, anxiety and feelings of isolation and for many, home is not a safe place to be.

BF Adventure is officially recognized as a provider of key services to young people who are vulnerable, have an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) and/or are disabled. Many of these young people are currently in crisis and BF Adventure is delivering a scaled down service from its safe and accessible outdoor site.

Our Crowdfunder offers rewards

Due to Covid-19, BF Adventure has lost nearly all of its income following the temporary closure of its site to groups and the public. Without financial support, this accessible site may have to close forever.

Our work is needed more than ever and many young people have begun to open up to BF Adventure about aspects such as domestic abuse, substance misuse and housing issues – dangers which have intensified through this pandemic. We have therefore launched a crowd- funding campaign, which enables supporters to receive fantastic rewards.

Rewards for supporters

BF Adventure is offering the chance to pay it forward and receive discounted activity vouchers, giving supporters and their friends or family the chance to join them onsite once the current restrictions lift. Activities range from climbing to watersports, quarrysteering, zip-lining and Via Ferrata. Many of these activities are available as childcare for 6-13 year olds, for which there are also vouchers. It plans to open for the summer holiday period with Covid-19 safe activities.

Corporates can donate, select a sponsorship package with a range of benefits, or pay it forward and purchase a Teambuilding/Team Away Day, or team entry into its award-winning Business Challenge Event.
