Bader Braves offers unique experiences and life improving new skills to kids.
The Bader Braves initiative offers support, friendship and unique experiences to children affected by limb loss or any other form of disability. We offer a range of exciting and challenging activities aimed at improving life skills, creating bonds and increasing confidence.
Over The Wall
New for 2020!, The DBF has partnered with activity organisers Over the Wall to expand the range of activities and locations we can offer to children.
Young Aviators Days
A big part of Bader Braves is the Young Aviators Days which provide youngsters from 6-18 with limb deficiency and other disabilities with the opportunity of experiencing flight in a light aircraft. This incredibly popular and successful venture is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year! We continue to enlist the support of new airfields in different parts of the country so that we can offer this unique opportunity to more youngsters.
Adventure and Challenges
As well as our Young Aviators Days, we organise diverse adventures and challenges for our Braves such as Adventure Weekends with the Calvert Trust at their wonderful venues in Exeter and Kielder, as well as Sailing, Go-Karting, Fishing and Canal Boat Trips. We are always looking to add new adventures and welcome suggestions. We would be delighted to receive your input. Please keep checking the Events Page for updates and information. Most activities can easily be applied for via our online forms.

Donate to The Bader Braves
As always, the DOUGLAS BADER FOUNDATION relies almost entirely on fund-raising to survive and to continue to assist amputees and other disabled and we would be delighted to hear from anyone with ideas, fund-raising or otherwise, to support this venture.
