Charity of The Year

Charity of The Year

Calvert Trust Exmoor is a charity situated on the edge of Exmoor close to Wistlandpound Reservoir. The Centre provides all year round, challenging outdoor activity breaks for disabled people of all ages and abilities together with their families, friends and carers. Our mission is to transform the lives of our disabled visitors and to enable them to achieve their potential through the challenge of outdoor adventure, to increase their sense of independence, improve their self-confidence and self esteem and to offer them the same opportunities as able bodied people.

Visitors come from all over Southern England, from London and the Home Counties and up to the Midlands although many are from our local communities in Devon and Somerset. Our visitors come from organizations such as Mencap, Headway and Back Up, special schools and family groups.

As we receive no Government funding we are dependent on fundraising to provide bursary support for those visitors who are financially disadvantaged and to replace and renew essential specialist equipment to make the activities offered accessible to all of our visitors.

We are very grateful to The Exmoor White Horse Inn and to their customers for choosing us as their Charity of the Year.

Here at the The Exmoor White Horse Inn we are extremely pleased to be associated with such a well-established and esteemed local charity, and look forward to working closely along side the Calvert trust over the coming year. Whilst supporting the charity locally and nationally through our extensive network of contacts.
