Over The Wall

Charity registered in Scotland SC043191

Over The Wall is a UK based charity for children with serious illness and disabilities, and their families, to discover a world of mischief and magic. A place where they can be brave and have fun with others. These amazing places are physical – in residential camps and also available online – with Camp in the Cloud. And what’s more, it’s all free!

Their everyday challenges are unique and special. Attending a transformational camp or experience allows them to leave that all at the gate. They get reminded of what it means to be a child. They get to laugh, dance and cause mischief all in a safe relaxed environment.

Our vision is to provide every child living with the challenges of serious illness or disability, and their families, access to our free-of-charge transformational programmes.

Current opportunities

Over The Wall is a charity for children and young people with health challenges and disabilities to discover a world of mischief and magic. We provide a safe place to step outside of comfort zones, establish friendships and build confidence through meaningful and exciting activities. We run residentials in England and Scotland, as well as virtual activity camps for families in the UK to join from their own homes. We need volunteers each year to help run our programmes. There are a variety of roles to suit each volunteer’s skills and strengths. You can join us at our residentials as a teammate, clinical volunteer, activity leader or as media crew. Or, if you want to help from the comfort of home, you can join Camp in the Cloud as an online facilitator. Volunteers are a huge part of the heart and soul of Over The Wall. You play a leading role in providing the magical, transforming experience we give our campers and their families. Not only this, but you’ll have fun yourself! You’ll have chance to develop your own skills, make friends and create memories that last. It’s not just our campers that Over The Wall has a lasting impact on!
