Challenging Disability Through Outdoor Adventure

Our Funding Partners

We are extremely grateful to all the various funding trusts and other supporters who provide us with funds and resources that enable us to carry out our work.  Since Dec 2015 the following organisations have generously supported our work.


Bailey Thomas Charitable Fund

The Bailey Thomas Charitable Fund is a grant making registered charity which was established primarily to aid research into learning disability and to aid the care and relief of those affected by learning disability, by making grants to voluntary organisations working in this field.

Learning disabilities (intellectual disabilities), and autism are their priorities for funding. The Trust considers projects for children or adults.  The Trust does not give grants for research into or care of people with mental illness, dyslexia, dyspraxia nor ADHD, if they do not also have learning disabilities (intellectual disabilities).


Bernard Sunley Charitable Foundation

The Bernard Sunley Charitable Foundation (BSCF) was established in 1960 and is a general grant making trust. The Trust Deed of the Foundation allows the trustees to give to charitable causes at their discretion.

The aim of the trustees is to help raise the quality of life, particularly for those who are young, disadvantaged or elderly. Each year grants totaling about £2.5 million are made to a wide range of charities.


The Clare Milne Trust

The Charity was established in 2002 by Clare Milne, with funds derived from her grandfather, A A Milne. Clare was herself disabled and had therefore experienced the benefits to be derived from well run hands-on charities.

The aim of the Clare Milne Trust is to help smaller effective charities with good volunteer support with their work for the disabled in or close to Devon and Cornwall.


The Drapers Charitable Fund

The charity aims to improve the quality of life and expectations of people and their communities, especially those disadvantaged or socially excluded, through the award of grants in the fields of education and social welfare, particularly in Greater London where the Company has its historical roots.  The Company also promotes its textile heritage through support for textile conservation, and maintains its traditional support for the City of London, Northern Ireland, and heritage.


The EBM Charitable Trust

The EBM Charitable Trust was established in 1982 by the late Eric Blechynden Moller. The trustees 2014/15 annual report, as has been the case in previous years, stated simply that the trust aims 'to support a wide variety of beneficiaries including charities involved in animal welfare and research, relief of poverty and youth development.' Furthermore, that resources would be maintained at a reasonable level in order continue funding general charitable purposes.
