NOTE: The team at Back Up are closely monitoring government advice on coronavirus. We know that the situation is changing daily, and because of this we are working to rearrange the courses to a more suitable date. Please keep an eye on our social media for updates.

We’re happy to announce that we will be running a Easter Under 13s course for the first time!

For both Easter and Summer 2020 we will be running courses for up to 7 children who are 13 years old and younger (the youngest we have had on our course is aged 5). Whatever your level of injury, you get to try lots of outdoor activities like canoeing, horse riding and archery as well as swimming and having fun with new friends. You will come with a parent/adult guardian with you and we do have some spaces on the course for siblings, so they get to meet other families who are in a similar situation to you. We run two Under 13s courses:

The Calvert Trust is an organisation which we have a long relationship with. It provides holidays and courses to lots of people who use a wheelchair or may need a bit more support.

We have adults and young people that lead the course who have a spinal cord injury themselves, so they will be able to share their life experiences with you.
