the living bursary
We know how valuable time spent adventuring outdoors is for our wellbeing. We also know that the cost of accessing wild, adventurous activity can be prohibitive. In reality it is often those for whom financial challenges present a significant barrier (at that time in their life), that would benefit greatly from joining one of our inclusive, supportive and mindful adventures in the wild.
As one element of our response to the above, in 2023 we launched The Living Bursary. We contribute 1% of all sales to this fund to support access for those who may feel excluded due to their current financial situation, and we’re also asking for voluntary contributions from those who would like to, and have the means to support others in accessing these vital opportunities. There’s no judgement if you don’t/can’t but if you can, and you want to, thank you.
We offer Bursary support on two of our adult products; our Women's Wild Weekends, and our Men's Wild Mountain Adventure, as well as to students wanting to take part in their school adventure with us.
Thanks to the generosity of our guests throughout 2023 we have in 2024 provided 3 bursary funded places to guests on the above adventures. This has emptied the pot for now, meaning we can't offer any more bursary support at this time - but we're working on topping it up for later in the year.
When the bursary is open, it is open to anyone - if you’re someone who’d like to access support to join one of the above Wild Adventures, please contact us (confidentially) on email@example.com. You will not be asked to justify yourself, and we’ll do all we can to support you getting out there with us in the wild.
If you’re someone who would like to contribute to our bursary and support accessibility for others please either:
1: Answer yes to The Living Bursary request when booking your adventure and we’ll be in touch
2: Reach out to us (confidentially) directly on firstname.lastname@example.org
3: Send whatever you can to the following details (you’re welcome to send an email too)
