About us

Who we are

Who we are:

At Brathay, we know everyone has the capacity to do extraordinary things. We are a long-established charity based in the Lake District, working to deliver life-changing community programmes to thousands of young people and their families in real need.

The programmes we deliver are funded through the income generated by our non-profit social enterprises. We offer expert people development and purposeful leadership coaching which are valued by many leading public and private sector organisations for our progressive, innovative and adaptable approach to developing talent, teams and leaders. We also run high-quality outdoor residentials for schools, and we generate additional income from the Windermere Marathon, other challenge events, and holiday accommodation.

Brathay is established as a Charity and as a Company Limited by Guarantee. Today we employ around 100 staff and 40 associates. We operate from three locations - the main site, just outside Ambleside, together with two important and growing community centres in Bradford and Barrow.
