We are delighted to announce that CRED Team Trips has now joined the Lifesigns family of organisations. The amazing work that CRED Foundation has achieved over the last decade will continue and will now be administrated by the Lifesigns Group. CRED Foundation will work in partnership to support CRED Team Trips in the future to ensure that the programme ethos continues.
CRED Team Trips are a life-changing opportunity for individuals of any age, and open to groups from any sector. Participants work as a team to plan and deliver an educational activity week for one of CRED international partner projects.
'I have become more focused on my college work as a result of the trip, because I get the opportunity for free and it is easily available, whereas they struggle to get the opportunity.' LH
'I now feel very lucky for everything I have as the people we met did not have much at all, not even a family sometimes.' HW
We don’t believe in ‘charitable handouts’. We’re working to redress the balance for developing nations: the balance of dignity, equality, and the opportunity to stand on your own two feet.
We don’t run any projects on the ground ourselves. Instead we build relationships with locally-run organisations that provide grass roots opportunities for Education, Employment & Enterprise, Environmental Sustainability and Community Development.
Our core aim is to build the capacity of our partners, whilst empowering people from the UK (especially young people) to engage in global citizenship in a very direct way.
CRED Team Trips achieve our aims: our partners benefit from the team programmes and long term strategic input, whilst young adults gain crucial skills and have a life changing experience.
