We can offer accessible indoor climbing courses for people with learning disabilities and “drop in” taster sessions for any individual who need support to use the climbing wall.
Climbing and being in the outdoors has been proven to be beneficial to people with learning disabilities and mental health problems, as it improves both physical and mental wellbeing in a playful way. But it also creates opportunities to meet other people, find climbing and buddies and make friends: It’s a perfect place to participate in an activity with others and it enables real inclusion!
In co-operation with CroyWall we can facilitate indoor climbing courses and drop in sessions for adults with learning disabilities, enabling participants to access the outdoor rock climbing environment.
The climbing course contains 11 weekly sessions (1.5 hours) on a 1:2 ratio, followed by one outdoor day. A especially developed syllabus details objectives and outcomes and helps to monitor the progress.
Participants can become club members and participate in further outdoor activities, on their own, if appropriate, or together with their support staff.
“Drop In” sessions are open for people with mental health issues or disabilities. Participants will get a go at climbing, see if it is something they enjoy, and learn about the next steps they need to take to start climbing and to access the outdoors.
The courses and drop in sessions are partly funded by CroyWall and Sport England.
