Become a British Exploring Society Patron

British Exploring Society Patrons Programme has been established to ensure we can transform more young lives. We very much hope you will consider joining this special group of British Exploring Society supporters and we look forward to welcoming you to our community.

Many of the young people who would most benefit from our work lack the significant financial resources necessary to participate. They have been excluded from opportunities throughout their childhood for similar reasons. Our patrons remove this barrier.

By joining a community of generous supporters, we can help more young people build their confidence, understand and develop their potential and secure themselves a more positive future.

What's involved

As a Patron, you would make an outstanding contribution to the life of British Exploring Society beneficiaries. We will ensure that there are opportunities for you to meet with and hear from the young people you support – and from the people who support them, too – like their leaders and youth workers. We will also recognise your support in the following ways: 

• Regular personal updates from our CEO, on key strategic developments
• Regular reports, which capture and communicate the impact of your support through the experiences and feedback of the young people you have helped
• Recognition in published materials, including our Annual Report
• An invitation to British Exploring Society events including our annual celebration evening, providing the opportunity to meet others who share your enthusiasm and commitment to our work
•  An invitation to phase three of our programmes - Focus on the Future, in the UK
