Hollowford Centre

Description

The Hollowford Centre is based in Castleton and run by the Lindley Educational Trust charity.  We provide inspiring personal and team development experiences, using the outdoors that help to build interpersonal skills, self-confidence and self-esteem; particularly for those who are from disadvantaged and vulnerable backgrounds.  We focus our work on children and young people, through schools, colleges, youth and community groups or employing organisations.

Each activity programme is designed to meet our clients’ specific requirements, whether it be the constraints of a tight budget or a small amount of time to fill, and we don't offer a "typical" activity programme. We would always relish the opportunity to work with you to design an activity programme, or happy to offer suggestions or take direction from the young people / group themselves.  Events can either be just for the day or for a longer residential. Programmes are run at Hollowford (S33) and other venues across the UK.
