Suitable for wheelchair users (subject to satisfactory risk assessment). Depending on your level of injury and mobility, you might be asked to get permission from a medical professional.

Skydiving is the ultimate challenge! Back Up works with both Skydive Buzz and Skyline to offer you the chance to take the plunge and jump from 15,000 ft. You could even get friends and family involved and jump as a group!

Skyline can organise your jump at a number of different drop zones across the UK subject to a satisfactory risk assessment. If you are a wheelchair user wishing to jump, we would advise emailing the company directly and speaking to them about your requirements before paying the registration fee. You must be aged 16 or over and the first £70 of the £400 sponsorship must be paid as a deposit direct to Skyline when your application has been accepted. To register click here.

Skydive Buzz are based in Devon. They work with over 400 charities to ensure they can give anyone and everyone the skydiving experience they are looking for. To register with Skydive Buzz please visit here.

We offer a jump for free scheme, where Back Up will cover the cost of your skydive provided you have a minimum sponsorship target of £400. Alternatively, you can pay for your own skydive and raise whatever you can.

Why join the Back Up team?

  • You’ll receive lots of support from our lovely fundraising team with regular updates, hints and tips to help with your preparation and targets
  • We’ll provide you with a bunch of goodies to help you reach your fundraising goal
  • You’ll receive one of our brightly coloured Back Up t-shirts to make sure you stand out.

Emily will be here to provide you with materials to help you with your fundraising efforts, and will support you right up to the day you take the plunge.

”I have Back Up to thank for helping me organise this jump. I’m hoping the money I raise will help them to continue their important work.”
