The FAR Skate Foundation is a charitable organisation passionate about empowering young people. Within the foundation there are two elements the FAR Academy that provides alternative education and required qualifications, and the FAR Skate Shop that supports the educational services that the FAR Academy provides.

Using skateboarding as the channel to engage young people on to the positive pathway of learning, through personal achievement and alternative education; the FAR Academy provides a unique learning opportunity which has been tailored to suit vulnerable young people who struggle to learn in a mainstream school.

The FAR Skate Shop is an inclusive space where the community can come together and share the passion and inspiration of skateboarding. FAR Skate Stocks over 600 products from all major brands and has a mini ramp on site for skate lessons and community events. Being a Charity all sales, both on-line and in the shop, plus all donations and events support the essential educational work of the FAR Academy.
