In these unusual times, The Outdoor Partnership is still working and keen to keep in touch with all our clubs and members. April is normally the start of our membership year, but considering the circumstances we have decided not to offer membership at this time. With all courses and events cancelled for the foreseeable future, and peoples’ minds on keeping themselves and their families safe, now is not the time. However, when the time comes to re-start activities we will most definitely be helping clubs again.
Lauren is a keen and active volunteer, helping at numerous clubs and facilitating sessions in many different activities, meaning that theses guys from Ysgol Eirias for example get the chance to try some climbing!

What people are saying
Brilliant sub aqua sessions, great instructors and a fantastic experience. Will be looking into more session as would like to carry on.
I'm off to Peru on Saturday for a month as an expedition leader. From unemployed to leading the other side of the world, thanks to The Outdoor Partnership!
It is fair to say that as a family we had led a very sedentary lifestyle and many outdoor activities seemed very far placed from our day to day lives. Thanks to the Outdoor Partnership we were now hooked. My wife and I have gone from having never paddled a kayak, to becoming qualified instructors. I hope now to be able to use these skills to teach others and help the local communities.
I had been unemployed, on and off, a pattern that repeated itself over many years… I felt rejected, my confidence was at an all-time low, I had little or no self-esteem when I came across the Outdoor Partnership. They believed I could do it, they believed I was competent! They believed in me when I didn't believe in myself and it was their support that got me through quite a difficult period of my life! I have regained my confidence and self-belief and am now a qualified Mountain Leader and working toward becoming a climbing instructor
