Bendrigg Trust

Bendrigg Trust is an outdoor centre specialising in supporting people with disabilities to increase their confidence, develop their independence and broaden their horizons through inclusive adventurous activities. At Bendrigg, people feel 'celebrated' rather than 'accommodated' and we work hard to provide access and adaptation for all.

New communication resources

We are absolutely delighted to say that the first 11 of over 20 activity social story videos have been completed. We've created these videos as part of our Hidden Disabilities project to improve our communication resources and help to reduce levels of anxiety for people with learning disabilities and Autism when they come to Bendrigg. Read more about the Hidden Disabilities Project on our blog here > https://buff.ly/3IDMIUP

We have videos covering most of our activities including canoeing, caving, climbing, ropes course, zip wire, archery and much more. Videos covering some of the domestic routine are also coming soon such as how to make beds, set the table and load the dishwasher.

If you can't wait then all our currently available activities have all been uploaded to a designated playlist on our YouTube channel > https://buff.ly/3yweHRD

Let us know what you think!

A huge thank you to Adamedia and Amphigean Limited for their support with developing these wonderful resources.
