Why we need your support
British Exploring Society runs unique expeditions which develop the confidence, teamwork, leadership and resilience of those taking part and extend and enhance their understanding of the world around them. Participants describe their experience, and more importantly the impact on their lives and futures, as life-changing. Read more about the impact of our expeditions here.
Through over 80 years of working in remote wildernesses, we have developed a unique, robust model of youth development which works particularly well for young people lacking strong role models, exhibiting high-risk behaviours or low self-esteem. As an organisation we aim to recruit more young people on our expeditions to ensure a wider societal benefit. Our mission is to deliver exceptional learning with permanent change to an increasing number and diversity of young people through the medium of exploration.
We can’t do what we do without the generous help from our supporters and volunteers. Whether you would like to support a specific expedition, one of our Explorers, our Explorer Miles social action initiative, or the organisation as a whole, you can do so through making a donation or participating in one of our annual fundraising events. Your support enables us to reach more and more young people across the UK.
