If you are interested in supporting British Exploring Society to help young people through challenging expeditions in wilderness parts of the world, please email at info@britishexploring.org.

We are grateful to all our supporters for their financial help. Some of these include:

Dangoor Education

Since 2011 the Exilarch's Foundation, David Dangoor and members of the Dangoor Family have very generously supported British Exploring Society; firstly through the Dangoor Next Generation Programme (DNG), (running since 2011) and more recently the foundation have also supported our first land and sea programme for young people with disabilities. Both programmes aim to support some of the most marginalised and vulnerable young people in the country. On DNG, 95% of those who complete the expedition phase of the programme are engaged in employment, education or training, within three months of returning home.

Garfield Weston Foundation

The Garfield Weston Foundation is a family-founded, grant-making trust which supports on average, approximately 1,500 charities across the UK each year from grants made by the Foundation ranging from the smallest community and volunteer projects through to large national organisations.

Sir John Cass’s Foundation

Sir John Cass's Foundationis one of London’s oldest and largest education charities. Founded in 1748, it supports education for young people in London through its grant programmes for individuals, schools and organisations, and its support for a number of institutions bearing Sir John Cass’s name. The Foundation has supported our Landmark programme since it’s inception in 2017, which predominantly supports young care leavers in the London area.

Wow! What an expedition. This has undoubtedly been the best 5 weeks of my life… summiting peaks, listening to the Dali Lama and going on glaciers. I have found all the Science really interesting and have learnt so much about the world and myself. I would recommend this to all young people as it really has been amazing.

Katherine - Himalaya Explorer

The expedition has been a life changing adventure that I definitely didn't expect, with some incredible memories and some amazing people that won’t ever be forgotten.

Harriet - Himalaya Explorer

I loved every minute of what was a life changing experience with some amazing people. I feel I learnt valuable skills and am now in a position to go on to do an awful lot more than I would otherwise have been able to.

Isaac - Himalaya Explorer

‘Five weeks in the Zara Valley has been an experience of a lifetime. Trekking to the highest peaks, battling altitude, the crisp ice as we scaled the glaciers… What an incredible adventure. I am not only taking away memories, I am taking home a wider appreciation for the environment.’ Jennie, Himalaya 2017

Jennie - Himalaya Explorer

It’s been life changing. This has been the first programme I've gone on that's worked for me and has really impacted me. I’d describe myself before expedition as a shy and nervous kind of person who worries a lot, but after finishing the expedition I've really changed and I now feel confident in myself and my ability to push my limits.

Young Explorer

As we left the jungle, I realised what an experience I had just had. The bus journey was the first time in 3 weeks where I had been able to completely stop and reflect on my experience. I am certainly more willing to try new things and feel more confident in myself as a person.
