Truth & Trust Adventure is a mobile provider and works mainly in the Peak District.

Malc Lawson set up Truth and Trust Adventure 6 years ago after working freelance for a number of providers. Malc is a NVQ Level 2 Qualified Youth Worker and has worked as a Youth Worker for Nottinghamshire County Council working with 13 to 19 year old Young People in Center based units at Rainworth, Selston and Jacksdale and also on a Mobile service and out on Detached work, he has also worked at The Mill Adventure Base, Sandhills Urban base and Holme pierponte. He has worked with Young People excluded from main stream education and NEET working towards an Asdan Qualification. Malc also holds an NVQ Level 3 in Outdoor Education.

Having spent his early years serving in The Royal Signals Malc gained lots of life experiences which have helped him when dealing with situations. He became the unit photographer working alongside Professional photographers and won the unit photographer of the year in 1985. Photography and the Outdoor Environment is something that I still want to develop.    

Malc has worked with PRU groups from Nottinghamshire, Doncaster and Princes Trust Residential’s for Manchester Fire Service and Manchester Groundwork.

Our team consists of Malc who runs most of the day to day activities, Julie our book keeper and Laura who is currently at Derby University studying a Degree in Professional Youth and Community Work.

We only use freelance staff who are known to us and one of the best is Dave who has extensive knowledge of Outdoor Education.
