No-one can assume to know everything and we are delighted that we have key organisations, professionals and beneficiaries who are happy to give their advice and, importantly pass on their own experiences to help us follow through with our mission.
Ensuring that we meet the needs of all those whose lives can be enhanced by participating in mountain adaptive activities - both sport and leisure - we do make use of an ever increasing network of people in the world of mountain adaptive and assisted sports; tourism; hospitality; travel; medical profession and associated organisations.
To see who might be able to help with extra advice or to have a reassuring chat with if you are a first-timer to the mountains please click here to see our group participants.
Relying on volunteers is very much part of our work ethos and we have no full-time employees. However we do use a technical design company to develop our website and illustrative film and photographic supporting evidence library.
George Walker Esq
George was with us from the very beginning and we owe him an enormous debt of gratitude. Sadly George passed away in 2016 and is still much missed.
Mrs Maggie Sargent
Maggie was truly inspirational as a Trustee and gave up much of her time to help support our work through her own experiences. Many of the young people who went on a Silver Lining and CCMS ski trips to La Plagne benefited from our portfolio of information and equipment donated by the Tobell Family.
Tim Farr Esq
Tim was a great Trustee who brought so much to our work as he himself was a Paralympic winter skier. He continues to point friends and members of BackUp Trust so we can help them achieve life-changing times on the snow. Tim left us to set up his own Access Adventures and we are happy to help raise awareness of his work.
