Since our launch in 2023 the team at Adaptive Adventurers has worked tirelessly to promote our cause. We are fortunate to have volunteers and staff from all walks of life who bring their unique expertise and resources into everything we do. This is what enables us to achieve our goals. We believe the outdoors should be accessible by all and to enable this, help and support is required. Our founder, Kate. S Appleby, is a chronic illness sufferer and having had her life saved by the mental health benefits of the outdoors, became passionate about enabling others, with similar challenges, to find the same peace and inspiration that she did. Using her experiences, frustrations, and perspective of a society often better equipped to look after the majorities, not minorities, Kate set about looking for ways to make a difference. After being asked for various contributions as a writer, speaker and guest at events, festivals and conferences, Kate then realised an ambition to take the movement to the next level. Engaging with a passionate team of trustees and advisors, Adaptive Adventurers was born.
