Hi i'm Jordan, I discovered climbing from a very young age, but only up until recently I have realised it has always been my go to place to help me through many of my own struggles. From everyday issues to addiction and mental health I have always found it to be the only thing that has helped physically, mentally and also socially. With this learning I realised I wanted to give back and offer climbing to others and the same opportunities that have helped me.
So 'The Chalk Effect Climbing Project' was born.
Hi I'm Dale, Climbing for me is a form of escape, a way to feel free from all the stresses of life.
The people we help discover climbing have been through a lot or are still struggling with certain aspects of their lives, just being there to help them find that peace within themselves, taking on a task and gaining that sense of achievement, being part of a group and encouraging others is why I like to help out at Chalk.
Hi I'm Emma, Having known Jordan for a very long time, seeing him go through some extremely tough times in his life. Chalk Climbing Project is now a thriving community created by one guy which now reaches out to many in the hope that it brings Joy, friendship, and new interests all the while creating and maintaining a positive, healthy state of mind. Seeing what he has created makes me want to be more involved each and every day!
Hi I'm Yasmin, For me, The Chalk Effect Climbing Project combines two things I'm most passionate about - climbing and psychology! The thing I love most about climbing is the lessons it teaches you about yourself. You have to face your insecurities and deal with failure. So many psychological aspects of climbing transfer to everyday life. I feel very blessed to be a part of the Chalk Team, and to be making a difference to the lives of individuals here in Cornwall.
Hi i'm Jack. As an ex army climbing instructor, I know the benefits of climbing on mental health. I really enjoy volunteering with Jordan @ Chalk because not only do I know the positive effect it has on those who attend, but it keeps my mental health in check when I see people achieving their goals with my help !!
