Challenging Disability Through Outdoor Adventure

Rachel's Story

I really enjoyed my time volunteering at Calvert Trust Kielder, having only worked with disabled children in the past, it was great to get involved with the adult respite care guests.

The other staff were so friendly and welcoming and really made me feel like my help as a volunteer was valued, and I really got on well with the other volunteers! 

I learnt so many new skills whilst helping run the various activities, and I hope I can come back and volunteer again at Calvert Trust Kielder, it was a brilliant experience in an amazing setting.
