Organisation name

British Exploring Society


British Exploring Society is a world class youth development charity with a unique heritage, founded on the belief that challenging experiences can transform lives, empowering and equipping young people with the courage, skills, resilience and determination to make the most of their future.

Most young people return with increased self-belief, a dynamic peer group and the determination and ability to make the most of their future, regardless of where they started out. Their vision is for all young people to be able to contribute confidently in the world, with equal access to challenging learning and adventure in the wilderness as an unbeatable preparation for adult life. Their mission is to grow and celebrate a diverse, inclusive community of young people with the skills, resilience and determination to make lasting positive decisions in their own lives, and to deliver community benefit and positive environmental change.


Expeditions for young people (14-25 years).
