    3. Climb Up Bristol: www.climbup.org.uk

    4. Urban Uprising: www.urbanuprising.org

    We fund climbing and educational programs for at risk young people. With the support of TCA Glasgow, we opened up several projects in Glasgow, in early 2016. These run during the school holidays and are proving to be a real success. We’ve also opened up an Edinburgh Uprising in 2017 which runs out of EICA Ratho. These projects typically run once a week for two hours and have 10 young people involved. We are entirely run by volunteers, so 100% of your donations reaches those that need it.
