The Thomas Theyer Foundation
The Thomas Theyer Foundation is a local charity that aims to support children and young people with additional needs, their families and carers by providing access to outdoor activities and respite accommodation.
The foundation became a registered charity in June 2015 and is currently raising funds to build two lodges at White Hall Education Centre in the heart of the beautiful Peak District of Derbyshire. The aim of the Thomas Theyer Lodges is to provide accommodation for groups needing separate facilities, so that all children and young people can benefit from an outdoor education experience. Also families, carers and other groups can visit the centre for respite breaks and simply enjoy the area.
The University of Derby supports the Thomas Theyer Foundation with help in marketing and press relations.
