Posted Tuesday, 13th April 2021

Day Activities for disabled people and their families/support bubbles from April to June.

Bendrigg Trust at Old Hutton, near Kendal, specialises in delivering high quality activity courses for disabled and disadvantaged people. They aim to promote inclusion, encourage independence and build self-confidence through the safe provision of adventurous activities. Carlisle Mencap is proud to have close ties with the trust and has often had groups visiting to enjoy the facilities there.

Groups must have at least one person with a disability and live in one of the following areas : Appleby, Brough, Kirkby Stephen, Orton, Tebay, Askham, Bampton, Barton, Patterdale, Shap, Yanwath, Ambleside, Burton-in-Kendal, Grasmere, Grayrigg, Kentmere, Kendal, Windermere, Kirkby Lonsdale.

Other dates for families not from this area are available here.

Each day available is for one group which can be up to a maximum of 12 people from 2 households.
At least one member of your group (adult or child) will have a disability.

Thanks to funding the trust is able to offer these day activities for £134 per group of 12.

Day activities will run from 9.30am - 4.30pm and could include a selection of activities such as canoeing, cycling, sensory room, archery, zip wire, orienteering, sensory swing and tube slide. Activity availability depends on a number of factors so not all activities may be available on each day. After booking, one of the trust's team will be in touch with you to discuss your individual requirements and suitable activities.
