UKST and Climbing Out

Climbing Out is a charity that works with adults who have had their lives derailed by trauma – whether that be an injury, illness, or PTSD.

The fully funded 5-day mental resilience programmes combine outdoor activities and personal development coaching to empower people to take control of their mindset, actions, and behaviour.

Their residential programmes help people who are ready to take their lives forward, helping to make sense of why they think and feel the way they do.

The programmes take place in North Wales, the Peak District, Shropshire and the Lake District. The team of instructors provide a week of challenging outdoor activities to stretch comfort zones, personal development coaching to teach mental resilience tools, and evening social events to encourage the group to form friendships that will offer support after the programme has ended.

The outdoor activities include climbing, kayaking, hill walking, abseiling, caving, and cold water swimming. All the activities are adapted to meet the needs and capabilities of the individual participants.

Personal development sessions are run throughout the week to give participants the tools to accept the past, move forwards in life and deal with challenges they may face in the future.
