Dates to be arranged

Signing up

When signing up your young person, please note that the child is not guaranteed a place on this programme. We aim to accommodate all requests. With this in mind, please consider if this is the right programme for your young person. This is likely to be physically and mentally challenging so please ensure that young people who are put forward are able to complete the challenge!

This application must be made in conjunction with the carer. It is expected that children will be in a stable placement and able to deal with meeting new people and have a good standard of behaviour.
