Youth Adventure Trust
Helping vulnerable young people gain vital life skills through outdoor adventure
Our donations to Youth Adventure Trust helps vulnerable young people gain resilience, confidence and new skills that will last a lifetime – all through outdoor adventure.
“We are so grateful for the support of the Axis Foundation and your help in enabling vulnerable young people from Salisbury to flourish. The young people on our programme need our support more than ever – we simply couldn’t provide our life changing programme without donations from our generous supporters like the Axis Foundation. Thank you!” – Louise Balaam, Director of Fundraising
More about our Donation
Our first donation, of £3,790 to Youth Adventure Trust enabled six Year 7 pupils from Salisbury to join Youth Adventure Trust’s programme for a year. During this time the young people will benefit from the ongoing support and guidance from their Youth Support Worker. They attended residential camps and activity days which use outdoor adventure as a platform for development. Our lucky six also earned ASDAN educational credits as part of the programme.
In 2022 the Axis Foundation Trustees donated a further grant of £4,949 to fund the six pupils for their second year: they will attend Coastal Camp and Forest Camp, stretching their comfort zone with activities such as paddleboarding, kayaking, climbing and sleeping out on the forest floor. By challenging themselves in a supportive environment, they learn that they are capable of more than they thought!
We were delighted to hear that Youth Adventure Trust was honoured with The Pride of Wiltshire Award in March 2023: county publication Wiltshire Life presents this award to organisations which have made a significant contribution to the county and will continue to be an asset for many years to come. Well done!
