Money raised will help fund the c £1.3m capital redevelopment of Old Windebrowe, our grade 2 listed farmhouse and tithe barn which is thought to date back to the 1550’s and was once used as a home by William Wordsworth.
The redevelopment will deliver six specialised apartments suitable for stroke survivors and those with acquired brain injuries or physical impairments, including a communal area allowing guests to receive occupational therapy and rehabilitative support on-site. With the additional benefit of being able to access the activities we already run, this will be a unique new service and further develop the Calvert Trust offering.
Welcoming over 3,000 people per year to our residential centre we now have 40 years’ experience in delivering challenging outdoor adventure for those with disabilities.
"The centre gives people with disabilities an opportunity to discover, in safety, what they CAN do, and will help them to get as nearly as possible into the mainstream of life"−
"Our mission is to enable people with disabilities to achieve their potential through the challenge of adventurous activities in the countryside"−
"To keep the doors open here at the Lake District Calvert Trust it costs over £1m a year, that is why your help is so important!"−
