Helping Young People Reach their full Potential
BAC provide expert training and support to young people with a disability. We make sure everyone has access to our activities to
have fun and learn.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award has been a very popular and successful aspect of the Realise project. Working with visually impaired people, BAC has delivered DofE training end expeditions at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels including a Gold cycling expedition to the Netherlands.
The Adventure Learning Park at BAC is fully Accessible allowing wheelchair access to everything including certain parts of the cave and the climbing tower. The Boat House at Shaws Bridge is also wheelchair friendly.
If you are a Special Needs School or an organisation working with young people with various disabilities we can put together a residential package at Ardaluin House in Newcastle, which would focus on Independent Living Skills. Skills covered can include: communication, kitchen skills, food preparation, washing dishes, money management, washing clothes, use of appliances, social skills, outdoors survival and cooking, gardening, use of outdoor equipment and maintenance. The programme will address life skills on a very practical level utilising the self-catering accommodation our 6 acres of on-site woodland and the Newcastle area.
