Adferiad Recovery are partnering with the British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) to champion and promote the annual inclusive BRIT Challenge between the 23rd January and 23rdMarch 2023.
The BRIT Challenge is being delivered to support and improve young adult, student and staff mental health and fitness throughout the UK.
Every university, college, Students’ Union and specialist college are invited to take part, however the BRIT Challenge is also open to any team who are keen to help support young adult mental health.
Teams can register for free from the 23rd September 2022 at https://www.thebritchallenge.org.uk and raise funds for Adferiad Recovery and BRIT during their BRIT Challenge.
Adferiad Chief Executive, Alun Thomas, said: “Adferiad Recovery are honoured to have entered into a special relationship with The British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) ahead of the annual BRIT Challenge, which is being delivered to support and improve young adult, student and staff mental health and fitness throughout the UK. As an organisation working with people facing complex life challenges, we know that if we support our young people well, we can provide them with the resilience to face those challenges. In order to do this our educators and support staff are key.
“BRIT’s outstanding vision to deliver the annual inclusive BRIT Challenge is a great opportunity for students and staff of all abilities, throughout Wales, to participate through many different activities and reach their distance and fundraising targets while having great fun and building friendships. The BRIT Challenge is flexible to enable universities and colleges to choose when they take part, between 23rd January and 23rd March 2023, and plan their activities.
“Every team taking part in the BRIT Challenge can choose a second charity to raise funds for, alongside BRIT, and we hope Welsh university and college teams will choose Adferiad Recovery as their second charity. This will help fund our work to support people with mental health problems – with a special emphasis on those with a serious mental illness – and their carers and families. We also support others with a range of disabilities and their carers and families.
“We wish every Welsh university and college team the very best of luck as they take on the BRIT Challenge.”
