The Adventure Fund, in association with Sidetracked Magazine, is an annual grant established to support individuals or groups who display a creative and innovative approach towards adventurous travel.


The Fund aims to encourage applicant(s) to hold a creative approach; to believe that adventure can be had just as easily in Dorset as it can in Dushanbe. Applications are welcome from all ages, nationalities, activities and size of expedition, but the successful candidate(s) will be able to demonstrate how they will endeavour to use the grant money, which is not large, in an innovative and ‘Sidetracked’ manner. 

Closing date for applications: March 1st each year  // Funding Awarded: April 1st  each year.

The Adventure Fund is not available for commercial expeditions or pre-paid tours, including organised charity and fundraising tours. For further information, or if you have any questions, please email:
