RNIB Duke of edinburgh's award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has been a very popular and successful aspect of the RNIB Realise project. BAC has delivered DofE training and expeditions at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels including a Gold cycling expedition to the Netherlands for people with sight loss.

Residentials and Camping

BAC delivers residential opportunities focused on independent living skills for young people with disabilities. The residentials take place at Ardaluin House in Newcastle and cover skills including communication, kitchen skills, food preparation, washing dishes, money management, washing clothes, use of appliances, social skills, outdoors survival/cooking, gardening, use of outdoor equipment and maintenance.

The programme addresses life skills on a very practical level utilising our self-catering accommodation,  8 acres of on-site woodland and access to Newcastle and ‘The Mournes’, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. Facilities are not presently wheelchair accessible.
