We provide life-changing experiences to benefit children and young people


Action4Youth is a leading young people's charity which provides positive, transformational experiences and activities for young people of all abilities. Each year, 25,000 young people benefit from the charity's many programmes, including their outstanding outdoor education centre - The Caldecotte Xperience (TCX).

At TCX, adventure awaits around every corner. From thrilling water sports to exhilarating climbing experiences and more. Embracing nature and getting away from screentime offers a sense of freedom and can inspire young minds. It's a place where friendships are forged; positive mental wellbeing is nurtured; a safe place to test boundaries and unlock potential, regardless of ability. TCX provides fully inclusive activities for all young people including those who have SEND and other complex needs.

TCX is now over 30 years old and requires significant investment to upgrade facilities, improve accessibility and provide year-round activities for all. We want to help empower young people to challenge themselves, have fun, and discover what they can do, not what they can’t.

We’ve set ourselves the adventure of The Wadi Rum 100km Trek in Jordan from the 24th February – 2nd March 2024. This challenging 100km route, specially devised by Tribal Tracks will see us trekking 15-25km per day in the majestic Wadi Rum (a World Heritage site).
