Venture Outdoors deemed an outstanding success!


July 2014 marked the end of the Venture Outdoors programme, a highly successful initiative of Outdoor Recreation NI.

This scheme received funding by the Big Lottery and Ulster Garden Villages with additional support from Sport NI, Northern Ireland Environment Agency, Northern Ireland Tourist Board and Inland Waterways of the Department of Culture Arts and Leisure.

The project aimed to address the barriers limiting the use of the outdoors by local communities specifically focusing on individuals with a disability, from an ethnic minority and from areas of high social need.

Throughout the extended 5 year time period in which the project was run, Venture Outdoors significantly exceeded all set targets. For this reason, Outdoor Recreation NI has produced a document to highlight the work of the programme from 2009 – 2014.
