Climbing Out is a registered charity working with young people aged between 18-30yrs facing life changing injury or illness. The charity runs 5-day residential outdoor activity programmes that aim to help rebuild confidence and self-esteem post injury or illness.

Climbing Out was formed in 2010 by Kelda Wood, who was profoundly affected by the dramatic effect the outdoors had on her own physical and mental recovery after a serious leg injury.

Our aim is to challenge and inspire young people who have been ill or injured, and in doing so, help them realise their full potential and self-worth.

The programmes are run in the Lake District and are fully funded.
