Bendrigg Trust specialises in the provision of outdoor activities for people with disabilities.

Join us to complete your Gold DofE Expedition in one go from Tuesday 2nd – Monday 8th April 2024. This will be a ‘back to back’ expedition (i.e. training, practice and qualifying expeditions) over 7 days (6 nights).

Day 1: You will arrive at Bendrigg from 12 noon and go through the expedition training syllabus.

Day 2-3: You will take part in a 2 day, 2 night practice expedition.

Day 4-7: You will take part in a 4 day, 3 night qualifying expedition. On the final day of your qualifying, you will participate in a debrief with your assessor and give a presentation with your team.

The expedition will be fully accessible to cater for each team member’s needs and will be a mixture of walking/pushing & canoeing.

You will be staying within our main Lodge accommodation with the option (and encouragement!) of camping whilst on expedition. Our accessible accommodation has aids such as ceiling mounted tracking hoists, shower beds, wet rooms and profile beds.
