When a child or young person wants to explore the outdoors, but they can’t afford the basic equipment or education – our charity can help them overcome this barrier. 

We believe in changing young lives by giving first-hand experiences outdoors. For over 75 years, this has been the mission of the Field Studies Council.  

Right now, the FSC has hundreds of school groups and individuals unable to access day and residential trips and related guides. They need a leg up to remove barriers.  

Every year, demand for FSC’s education far exceeds our charitable funds. We know young people are missing out on experiences they need to protect the environment, improve their wellbeing, and live sustainably.

Thank you 

Every £ donated helps FSC deliver high-quality outdoor education for those in need. 

Your support will help people understand and value the natural environment upon which we all depend, especially now during a climate and biodiversity crisis. 

If you’re able, please donate to FSC today. Donating is quick, secure and trusted by our supporters across the UK.  

We won’t send you hundreds of emails either. Only the occasional email about the difference you’ve help made possible (if you choose to subscribe).  

What support does FSC offer young people?  

We’re pleased you asked.  

We provide opportunities for young people to access outdoor learning when they couldn’t otherwise.  

The focus is providing great tutors and facilities to deliver the best experience. Plus specific support for people most in need through discounts, subsidies, grants, scholarships and placements.
