We are thrilled to be working with Dorset Mind on this great initiative to help solve loneliness. Climbing has been proven to help reduce stress and improve wellbeing. As hybrid working has lead to people spending more time alone, this is the perfect opportunity for teams to socialize, have fun, and connect outside of the work environment. RockReef’s climbing and adrenaline activities are perfect for teams wanting to challenge themselves!”
