Opening Autumn 2019
Every year hundreds of thousands of people suffer life-changing brain injuries. They face a long and difficult road to recovery, often with limited support.
The Lake District Calvert Trust has challenged disability through outdoor adventure for over 40 years. Now, working with leading clinicians and academics, they are offering a ground-breaking, world-class rehabilitation programme tailored to support individuals in their recovery.
Lead by a multi-disciplinary team, this six-month course will transform lives – offering motivation, developing life skills, providing vocational activity and encouraging outdoor adventure.
Ultimately, Calvert Reconnections offers participants tangible results and real pathways back into everyday life.
In 2016 our ‘Go Herdwick’ project helped raise initial funding for this project, to develop the Old Windebrowe farmhouse and tithe barn near Keswick into a new specialist rehabilitation centre.
Feedback from our visitors:
“The planned ABI course will be really important to keep giving a regular boost – I’ve been here about 20 times since my ABI and I’ve got another 3 visits planned this year, maybe more. The air is great and the views are wonderful. It makes me feel good in the outdoors”.- John Gaimster
