Pull together now ladsSea-Change is an Approved Activity Provider for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and offers the 5 day Residential section to those working towards their Gold Award.

The aim of the residential is to inspire you through a constant involvement with people you don’t know, who are usually from different backgrounds and bring alternative views to the challenges you will face.

Our five day residential broadens your experiences by empowering you to make a difference in a team. There are dates throughout the season. Please click here for our itinerary and a typical programme.

Costs include food, safety equipment and waterproofs. In cases of hardship we may be able to assist you with a bursary towards the cost of your residential.


Through completing the Residential section you will:

  • Meet people
  • Develop the confidence to thrive in an unfamiliar environment
  • Build new relationships and show concern for others
  • Work as part of a team towards shared goals
  • Accept responsibility for themselves and others
  • Develop communication skills and effective coping mechanisms
  • Develop respect and understanding for others
