Outdoor learning opportunities for disadvantaged young people
Today the government announced thousands more disadvantaged young people will access outdoor learning opportunities away from home, helping them to develop vital life skills and build confidence for a brighter future.
- We want every young person to have the best start in life, and that includes access to exciting opportunities that take them out of their comfort zone and expand their horizons.
- That is why the Conservative government is supporting disadvantaged young people, including children with special educational needs and disabilities, with outdoor learning opportunities away from home. Our Adventures Away From Home Fund, worth £1.5 million, will support up to 7,500 young people to take part in outdoor activities and weekends away.
- We are committed to helping young people develop new skills, build confidence and resilience to support personal development and build stronger communities for future generations.
