Support Barnstondale

We rely on your help and support to achieve our mission

Barnstondale provides a natural setting for personal development, through sport and adventure, study and reflection. We have been accommodating visitors for more than 60 years and became a registered charity in 2001. Although predominantly from the North West region, we also accommodate visitors nationally and as far afield as Ireland and France. 

Since the formation of the charity we have provided a safe and inclusive environment for people of all abilities to enjoy; in a normal year we support over 6000 young people. Barnstondale is for many, their first time experiencing the outdoors and their only holiday or respite of the year.


Support For 2023

Why Your Help Is Important Now, More Than Ever

The Barnstondale Centre Bursary Fund has been established to make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people who face barriers to this experience. We're passionate about giving everyone the opportunity to make lasting memories and believe that adventurous outdoor activity gives children and young people the chance to challenge themselves, build resilience and discover new skills and abilities.

We are experiencing a significant increase in demand for these funded places as more families and groups are impacted by the cost-of-living crisis. We anticipate this demand increasing further. We receive no statutory funding. Ordinarily we would fund these places from within our own resources. However, demand is currently outstripping these resources and we are seeking additional financial support to enable us to continue supporting those most in need to experience Barnstondale.
