“Without the bursary the children would not have been able to go on the residential trip which had such a positive impact on their learning.” Lucy, School Teacher
The Rock UK Bursary Fund – helping disadvantaged children to come to Rock UK
The Rock UK Bursary Fund means that no child misses out because their family can’t afford the trip.
It is thanks to the kind generosity of our supporters that hundreds of disadvantaged children, who otherwise would not have been able to afford a trip, have been given the chance to enjoy adventurous fun in the great outdoors with their friends.
Keep up to date with the impact of your support by signing up to receive our Supporter News.

Why support us?
“Our vision is to transform young lives”
Our supporters are very special to us. It is through your kindness and generosity, that we see young lives changed through the experience of outdoor adventure! At Rock UK young people grow in confidence, see their fears challenged and learn more about their own spiritual, mental and physical capabilities. Whatever you choose to do to support Rock UK, we are here to help you every step of the way.
Updating and Improving Rock UK facilities
For young people to receive the best possible outdoor experience at Rock UK, adventure facilities and equipment must be regularly refreshed and updated. Your support, through one-off or regular gifts, will make it possible for existing facilities to be updated and new facilities to be planned for the future – each development, achieved through your support, will help young people to create positive memories for life.
Training, mentoring and discipleship
Together with our supporters, young adults can see their lives transformed through training, mentoring and discipleship courses such as the one or two year Rock UK Instructor Training Programme. Thanks to the generosity of our existing and new supporters (such as a trainee’s friends, families and churches) this programme is offered to our trainees at no cost.
