We are an established, energetic youth charity who provide positive, often transformational experiences and activities which inspire children and young people.
Our aim is to enable young people of all abilities and disabilities to learn to challenge themselves and work with others – learning what they can achieve rather than what they can’t.
What we do
Everything we do engages the rising generation of our community to work together in helping not only themselves but each other.
It’s about inspiring young people to become Inspiring Young People.
Action4Youth operates an outdoor adventure and learning centre: The Caldecotte Xperience.
We operate The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and the National Citizen Service for the area and also represent a membership of youth clubs and organisations throughout the county, giving guidance and support to help their growth and development.
Outcomes: The shared experience of the activities contribute to a range of outcomes for those who take part, delivering self confidence, personal development and esteem, teamwork, leadership, community engagement and ultimately work readiness.
Introducing our fantastic Wheelyboat
Congratulations to Great Linford Primary School, our naming competition winners with their entry ‘The Wheel of Opportunity.’
‘Every young person not just the privileged, deserves enrichment opportunities outside the classroom. The Inspiration Programme is an exceptional body which gives young people the opportunity to learn more about themselves and society at large. It inspires their development as confident, interested young people ready to face the opportunities and challenges of adult life. I commend it most warmly’.

We supported a group of 16 young people with Learning Disabilities and/or Autism. We took advantage of many of the fabulous activities on site and were extremely well looked after by the staff team.
The open spaces and wooded areas, within safe boundaries afforded the opportunity for the young people to explore in a safe environment, Accessible facilities onsite were excellent.
The Caldecotte Xperience is a magical place and we will certainly be back!
