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.
Through 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 as 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.

By donating to the Explorer Miles Bursary you can make taking part in an expedition a realistic and achievable goal for everyone, no matter their domestic or financial circumstances. Partnered with vinspired, we offer bursaries to our Explorers to help them fund the cost of their expedition through social action. To be eligible for the bursary, Explorers must dedicate their spare time to a volunteering project in their local community before embarking on their expedition. Read more about Explorer Miles here
