COVID-19 Statement

By | Uncategorised

We wanted to take this opportunity to update you on actions we’ve had to take as a charity, in response to COVID-19.

Firstly, it’s important to us that we recognise how fantastic our funders, supporters and beneficiaries have been in recent weeks when we’ve faced challenge. We extend our thanks to each and every person who likes our social media posts, follows our journey, volunteers with us, funds our projects and has attended our outreach sessions. Thank you for all you’ve done for the Above Adventure so far, we’re glad you’re on the adventure with us, even as we navigate this twist in our journey.

To protect the communities we work with, our volunteers and our instructors, we have sadly had to pause all of our outreach activities for the lockdown period. This complies with government social distancing guidance and puts the interests of the vulnerable young people we work with in particular, first. When it is safe for our outreach activities to recommence, we will share this news and details of how to get involved with you.

At present, the construction of our new state-of-the-art climbing facility is also paused, again due to government restrictions on the industry. Our two employees have been furloughed, but we look forward to welcoming them back soon. As soon as we have news of when construction can resume, we will share it with you.

Your support so far has got us to this stage, and we remain ambitious and excited by the adventure ahead. If you’d like to support us during this difficult time, please do consider shopping via Amazon smile, where at no cost to you, 0.5% of every eligible purchase will come to Above Adventure!
