Land’s Edge Foundation (LEF) works in partnership with schools and other groups in a professional and supportive manner to develop and deliver a valuable and innovative education outdoors, amongst inspiring locations.

Working with young people, LEF aims to empower participants by developing and strengthening their self- confidence through meaningful and innovative initiatives that are engaging, challenging and enjoyable.

Providing an opportunity for young people to enjoy time in the natural (and where appropriate, urban) environment, to be challenged mentally, physically, spiritually, and given time to reflect upon their experience in it.

All LEF programs are developed by expert educators to allow young people time to: appreciate their environment, investigate and search for knowledge, journey growing physically and mentally, gain a sense of place – where location is paramount.
