CCHF merges with Outward Bound Trust
We are delighted to tell you that we have now merged with the Outward Bound Trust
Trustees have recognised that the aims, objectives, ethos and mission of the Outward Bound Trust is very similar to that of CCHF and this is a move that we believe will enable us to better achieve our shared mission of helping young people from challenging backgrounds across the UK.
While CCHF will not be continuing in its current form, two of our Trustees will be joining The Outward Bound Trust Board in order to ensure continuity and sharing of expertise and the CCHF CEO will continue to be involved for a period of time to help introduce referrers and supporters.
Our legacy will live on through an expanded bursary programme for children from disadvantaged backgrounds which will be named The Outward Bound CCHF Bursary Fund and there is also an opportunity for CCHF funds to be used to purchase an additional site for OBT to deliver its amazing programmes to even more young people.
The Outward Bound Trust was selected due to its clear goals and ethos which are shared with CCHF and the organisation’s strong commitment to helping young people learn and grow. The Outward Bound Trust is a hugely respected 75 year old charity with centres in some of the most beautiful and inspiring landscapes with expert instructors and staff and we are confident that this move will enable us to continue our legacy of helping disadvantaged young people to realise their maximum potential not only for now but for the future.
