YouthAbility Barrow is a youth service for young people with disabilities, aged between 7 and 40 years old. We work with over 4100 young people on a weekly basis. Our aim is to help the young people on their journey to adulthood through their physical and emotional development. We do this is a variety of ways that is both fun and educational. We are 100 percent self funded and require such events as the K2B to help us deliver this much needed service in the area. Alongside this, we also run the Walney Community Centre. The centre has been left to decay over the years and our mission is to develop this centre and make it a hub for the whole community to benefit from.
All donations are made to the Keswick to Barrow Walk Charity. A percentage of this donation will be used to fund the cost of the walk and support local charities in South Cumbria/North Lancashire. The remainder of the donation will be donated to the Walker's (Team) nominated charity(ies) as listed below.
