Action Centres UK Ltd (ACUK) are committed to releasing the potential of young people. It uses activities to develop the physical, mental, and spiritual capacities of young people so that they can grow to full maturity as individuals. The organisation serves young people in Northampton and accross the UK.
ACUK's services consist of:

• Activity Centres: ACUK's activity centres (Pioneer in Kidderminster and Whitemoor Lakes in Lichfield) welcome youth groups, schools, charities, and faith groups from around the country. These residential centres give groups an opportunity to take the adventure of a lifetime whilst learning new skills, building relationships, and getting away to have plenty of fun.
• Firm Foundations: ACUK's instructor training gap-year programme aims to equip young adults for the outdoor industry whilst developing them into well-rounded adults. ACUK's trainee instructors gain industry-standard qualifications and learn how to release the potential of young people.
