Charities and Projects

Giving something back isn’t about being worthy – we just think it’s the right thing to do. And, because a belief in the benefits of adventure is at the heart of Go Ape, that’s reflected in our charitable work.

Explorers Connect: Adventure Mind Grant

Applications Now Open

We’re excited to partner with Explorers Connect and the Helen Davis Foundation to support the first Adventure Mind Grant, a fund to help overcome financial barriers and create adventures.

Explorers Connect is a non-profit organisation founded by explorer and campaigner Belinda Kirk. Similarly to Go Ape, its purpose is to help people live life more adventurously, creating experiences with personal development, wellbeing and community at the centre.

The Adventure Mind Grant is open to individuals, families and small teams requiring support to make their adventure possible. Recipients will also receive a Go Ape experience ahead of their adventure, to kickstart confidence building, resilience, and teamwork.

The Prince's Trust

In 2021, Go Ape and The Prince’s Trust  forged a partnership for the following two years. Together we have supported young people across the UK who are unemployed, struggling at school or at risk of exclusion.

True to the Go Ape spirit, there have been many adventurous events and projects throughout our partnership. Every member of our 900+ Go Ape tribe have had the opportunity to volunteer, get involved and fundraise in wider Prince's Trust events.

“We are looking forward to teaming up with The Prince’s Trust and supporting the vital work they do. We’re donating £60,000 in cash over the two years, and will be making our adventure experiences available to The Princes’ Trust.

Our wonderful tribe are always up for a challenge and we’ve got a bunch of fun and engaging fundraising activities in the pipeline as well as lots of volunteering opportunities.”

Go Ape Founder, Rebecca Mayhew

“We are very excited to be partnering with Go Ape for the next 2 years. The Go Ape team have a great track record of fundraising for meaningful causes and we have plans to engage staff and customers in exciting ways for the duration of the partnership.

Go Ape will be generously match funding their staff’s fundraising efforts and our teams will work together to provide sessions for young people on our personal development programmes such as Explore and Team. This is the great news we all need after a challenging 12 months for everyone!”

Other Charitable Work

Over the years we’ve supported some incredible charities, both locally and nationally, by donating gift vouchers and by giving our time at fundraising events. Each of our teams fundraise directly for their chosen local charities. We’re also proud to support national charities such as Help for Heroes, Teenage Cancer Trust and Outward Bound Trust. We’ve had a lot of fun along the way and some amazing personal experiences.
