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.

During Spring 2021, Go Ape and The Prince’s Trust have forged a partnership for the next two years. Together we will support young people across the UK who are currently unemployed, struggling at school or at risk of exclusion.

True to the Go Ape spirit, there will be many adventurous events and projects in store for our partnership. Every member of our 800 strong Go Ape tribe will have 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

OUR PARTNERSHIP

Go Ape and The Prince’s trust believe that every young person should have the chance to succeed, no matter what their background and despite any challenges they may be facing.

Together, Go Ape and The Prince’s Trust will share their employability expertise and outdoor experiences to help 11- 30-year-olds upskill, reskill and build the confidence they need to get back on track in these difficult times.

“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!”

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.
