Journey of a Lifetime Trust

JoLt is a small charity run on a totally voluntary basis by a group of ordinary people with families and careers. It was set up in 1983 to make a positive lasting difference to the lives of disabled, ill, neglected and abused young people.
Every two years, we organise expeditions all over the world for groups of young people (from fourteen to twenty one years) with significant disadvantages. All long to travel to far-away places. JoLt makes their dreams come true.
These are not gentle comfortable trips, but tiring, taxing journeys in harsh environments that demand a great deal from the young people and those who accompany them. But they are also hugely rewarding, leaving participants with lasting memories of amazing places and a real sense of achievement.
For many the journey is a life-transforming event, "jolting"them out of their old lives, helping them to grow in confidence and self-esteem and giving them the ability to take control of their future.
