Backbone aims to entice and excite people of all backgrounds and abilities to experience the magic of our natural world. In doing so we form a bond with nature and find a desire to protect it.
Backbone is here to address barriers that prevent all sectors of our community to access the great outdoors and all that it has to offer. A powerful playground and educational tool for everyone to enjoy.
We do this by providing opportunities for Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic and marginalised communities to form relationships with the outdoor/environmental sector. Our experiential methods provide a safe and comfortable space for people and organisations to come together to share commonalities and celebrate uniqueness.
All of our activities provide a Safe Space both physically and psychologically, allowing participants to BE themselves without having to compromise personal values, needs and faith. We offer:
- Halal or suitable vegetarian/vegan food
- Exclusive use accommodation when required
- The freedom to wear what you want
- Time and personal space for prayer and reflection
