Make a Donation to the Peter Ashley Activity Centres Trust, Portsmouth
Your support helps us to care for these two Forts and bring our activities to more people.

PAACT is a charity and relies on your support. Every £1 donated is invested back into the buildings and activities, so that you can play your part in caring for these two scheduled monuments and keeping it as low cost for future generations to enjoy.

Whether you support us regularly or make a one-off donation, we appreciate your help in raising vital funds for the charity and bringing adventure into the life of a child today.

You can easily donate to help PAACT in its aim of supporting young people and preserve the Forts heritage!

Get in touch.

Why support us?

Our vision is to provide meaningful and challenging opportunities in a unique environment. Every year we welcome over 50,000 young people from all four corners of the UK. Motivated by our belief that the outdoors and the unique environment of the Forts can help develop and inspire, we love to help young people push the boundaries of their comfort zones and give them the confidence to understand more about their own mental and physical capabilities.

Helping children to come to PAACT

It is thanks to the kind generosity of our supporters that we can keep costs as low as possible so that hundreds of disadvantaged children, who otherwise would not have been able to afford a trip, have been given the chance to enjoy adventurous fun in the great outdoors with their friends.

Updating and improving PAACT facilities

For young people to receive the best possible outdoor experience at PAACT, activity facilities and equipment must be regularly refreshed and updated. Your support, through one-off or regular gifts, will make it possible for existing facilities to be updated and new facilities to be planned for the future – each development, achieved through your support, will help young people to create positive memories for life.

How could your support impact a young person?

All gifts, one-off or regular, will help to transform young lives at PAACT, creating confident kids and creating memories for life.

One Off Donation

Every £1 that you donate is invested back into the incredible historic Forts and to developing and increasing our activities and outreach. Your generosity makes a big impact to the charity and to the local community.
