Special Branch are our accessible tree climbing sessions for young people who live on the Isle of Wight and who have additional needs.
Special Branch is open to any Isle of Wight resident aged between 8 and 19 with a Gateway Plus card.
Siblings are welcome to have a climb too and if there’s room we also welcome parents and carers in the tree!
