Adventures BDCPS

BDCPS also offers short residential trips and special days out to sports events, music concerts, theatre shows etc.

These trips and days out are chosen by young people coming along to BDCPS clubs and schemes. They help young people to spend time with friends, to try out new things, build confidence, independence and achieve aspirations. Some of the adventures include other family members too.

Adventures also provide short breaks and respite to families to allow them time away from caring, time for themselves or to spend with other family members.

Plans for adventures come from talking to and working with the young people coming to BDCPS and parent/carers. The young people are encouraged to take part in organising activities that they want to do. They are not regular like clubs as they are fitted around when events are on e.g. Twickenham Rugby, Rhythms of the World Music Festival.

They cover all ages up to 25 years and a wide range of activities and can be anything from a few hours a night away, a long weekend or midweek break. Once an idea for a trip comes in the team work on how this can happen and how to raise some of the funds to do it.

Charges for the adventures are different depending on what it is and how much funding can be raised towards it by the team e.g. a big brother outdoor activity weekend cost families £195 (a fraction of the actual cost) a day out to see a Theatre performance and supper £30.

Safeguarding is taken very seriously. Each young person will have a volunteer or member of staff available if needed and parents are not required to stay/go along unless it is a specific family trip.

All staff and volunteers are trained to meet the basic needs of the young people for example; safeguarding and epilepsy awareness. Paid staff are also trained to provide first aid, personal care, tube feeds and administration of medication and emergency medication and where possible, any other requirement of the young person.
