"The Trustees of the Adventure Service Challenge (ASC) Scheme have decided to close the scheme from 19th May 2018. This has been done with huge sadness after the astonishing 58 years service to children and young people.

The decision was not taken lightly and discussions on how to keep the ASC going have been taking place over a number of years. The main reasons are for financial and personnel (lack of volunteers) issues.

The Charity will remain solvent and will be disposing of its assets up to 31st December 2108.

There will be an opportunity for groups, leaders and schools to acquire remaining stocks of resources at reduced prices until fully depleted. Please watch the website for details over the next few months.

Thank you all for your support over the years and you can be certain that another charity will be benefitting from any residual funds." (April 2018)

Bursary Scheme

Is lack of funding your main problem?

The ASC scheme organisation realises that for some potential Adventure Service Challenge groups, even the low costs of procuring ASC materials is a disincentive to taking up the Scheme.

We are therefore pleased to announce that ASC have been given a donation to enable us to provide a small bursary to cash-starved new ASC groups to enable them to purchase a starter set of materials.

Anyone intending to start an ASC group where start-up costs are a major factor may apply in writing to the General Secretary (see Contact Us) explaining the reasons why a bursary should be awarded to them. It must be stressed that a bursary may not be granted in every case, but each request will be considered by the ASC scheme on its merits.

Any individual or organisation granted such a bursary may submit an order for any mix of Record Cards, Certificates and Badges to a value of £40 (€45.20) and pay a total of only £5.00 (€5.65) - towards the cost of postage and packing (the gift which is funding the bursary was specifically stated to be in aid of the purchase price of materials and may not be used to cover post & packing). Exchange rates apply at the time of ordering.
