Our ethos

and what matters to us

We often hear that vulnerable children and adults are told that things are not possible. It's not possible for them to go on an adventure, have fun and do things that other people can do.

 

As a charity, we believe that everybody should be given the same “opportunities” and therefore our main aim is to make the impossible possible!

 

We believe that everyone has the right to access activities in the community on their own terms.
