The Calvert Trust is a registered charity that aims to enable people with disabilities, together with their families and friends, to achieve their potential through the challenge of outdoor adventure in the countryside.

The Exmoor centre has over 20 years experience providing adventurous activities for people with disabilities of all types. The centre is a converted Victorian model farm on a 40 acre site, located in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of Exmoor National Park, next to Wistlandpound Reservoir and a short distance from the North Devon Coast. 

The fully accessible centre is registered with the AALA, all activities are onsite and specifically designed and equipped to cater for all. The highly experienced instructors are experts in accessible activities, qualified by national governing bodies such as the BCU, RYA and BHS, and are specially trained to work with disabled individuals. All staff are fully DBS checked (formerly known as CRB).

Comments

Although I was only here in a support role I found it amazing! I was in a bad accident 3 years ago and spent 2 years learning to walk again. I used to have a very active life, this weekend, I managed to run for the first time in 3 years and go rock climbing. These were things I thought I would never do again. I feel like I have my old life back which I can't thank the Calvert Trust Exmoor enough, words don't cut it. I'm extremely grateful for the time here.by Max Smith on 04 August 2014
