Lake District Calvert Trust

Charity description

Lake District Calvert Trust logo

The Lake District Calvert Trust provides residential outdoor activity courses for people of all ages with physical, sensory or learning disabilities, providing a unique and life-changing experience for those with disabilities, who are encouraged to believe that it’s what you CAN do that counts.

Our mission is to enable people with disabilities to achieve their potential through the challenge of adventurous activities in the countryside in order for them to develop, change perceptions and make positive and lasting changes to their lives.

Pioneering equipment adaptations, and intensive, instructor-led activity programmes (that include climbing, abseiling, canoeing, sailing, horse/trap driving, archery, orienteering and paragliding), provide an environment whose aims are to teach, challenge, motivate, increase confidence in ability, promote independence, and foster integration. All instructors are highly trained and specialist qualified, and the facilities are specially adapted and fully accessible to all.
