I2getheruk  are a community interest company dedicated to supporting vulnerable “looked after “young people through their transition to independence in Greater Manchester.

We are crowdfunding to enable us to take 10 of these young people a month on an outdoor challenge weekend which will test and improve their ability to problem solve, work as a team, face adversity, communicate and perseverance.

For each donation of £40 or more you will be given an entry into our draw to win a membership for you and another to the hiking club run by Challenge the Wild and therefore attend any one of the UK based guided treks for free. Details of the treks are on their website The draw will be made once a month.

The weekend in the Lake District is one where the participants through their hiking together, navigating, planning and fulfilling each challenge like abseiling and rock climbing and cooking meals around a camp fire, leave with improved skills and self esteem. This new found self belief and opening up of new horizons is then worked upon in the programme by the team to improve other life skills leading to training,employment or further education.

I2getheruk have chosen to work with Challenge the Wild to create these experiences in the outdoors as they have proven to be a highly skilled and dedicated team, understanding exactly the needs of our young people.

It costs £400 to send each young adult on this trip ( the vital start to the programme).

Whatever you donate you will be helping to change the lives of these young people, giving them hope, a belief that they can aspire to their dreams and achieve what they thought was impossible.
