Bristol Inclusive Thrill Seekers
Bristol Inclusive Thrill Seekers are a volunteer led charity that provides people of all abilities and backgrounds the opportunity to take part in adventure sports. We run weekly sessions that give people the platform to take part in activities such as climbing, with our range of volunteers helping to make the activities accessible for people of all abilities.
What do we do?
Our team of hard working volunteers are well experienced climbers with the know-how to support a range of disabilities and impairments. With these skills we’re able to provide regular 1-1 sessions that support young people in developing what we see to be skills vital for achieving independence. We believe there’s no better way to achieve this than through adventure sports.
meet THE TEAM
The group running things at BITS are three hard-working individuals. James, Tom ,and Jess. With 10 years of history and a comparable amount of time spent on the climbing wall, you won’t find three better suited people for the job.
James was born without the lower part of his left arm. Having volunteered for a number of years he is now also a member of the GB Paraclimbing team.
Tom has been a climber for a number of years and has been involved in supporting those with additional needs for even longer. A real advocate for inclusivity.
Jess helps to keep the guys in check behind the scenes. A strong history in management, coupled with a keen eye for adventure, Jess is the ideal candidate to complete the trio.
We wouldn’t be able to make our roped climbing sessions work without the help from our volunteers. We have a good sized group of like-minded, experienced, enthusiastic people from around Bristol. They’ve been through the training needed to ensure we all stay safe on the wall and have fun along the way. We’re always training up new staff to help us in our growth. With the help of these friendly faces we’re able to accommodate any kind of impairment that is sent our way.
If you know a young person you think could benefit from the work we’re doing, or you’re passionate about inclusivity and think you could lend a hand. Then drop us a message here, we’d love to hear from you!
