    The challenge

    Shelter Scotland skydives are now sold out for 2024. We'll be back with our next skydive event in March 2025.

    If you’d like to be kept informed about the date of the next skydive in 2025, please complete and submit the form on this page.

    Parachuting from 10,000 feet, the Shelter Scotland skydive is an adrenaline rush and experience like no other.

    This is an amazing opportunity to tandem parachute jump, with great views over Edinburgh and Fife. On a good day, you can even see the southern Highlands in Perthshire.

    No experience is necessary, and you'll receive safe and expert guidance throughout. You’ll be strapped to a trained instructor who'll ensure your safety from the moment you board the plane to touchdown.

    Who can take part

    You must be at least 16 years old to take part, with written permission from an adult if under the age of 18.

    For participants' safety, there's a weight limit of 14 stone (89 kilos).

    On the day, you must bring:

    If you're under 18, your parent or legal guardian must sign the medical declaration form and the membership agreement form.

    Fundraise for Shelter Scotland

    When you fundraise for Shelter Scotland, you help us to provide vital expert support and advice to those affected by the housing emergency and defend the right to a safe home.    

    We recommend setting up a Just Giving page for online fundraising. If you don't already have a fundraising page, our community fundraising team can help you set one up once you've registered for the event.

    You can ask people to sponsor you through your fundraising page or use a paper form.

    Joint fundraising

    If you want to fundraise with other people, you can set up a joint fundraising page.

    Contact us at communityscotland@shelter.org.uk to let us know.

    The minimum fundraising target per person will still apply.

    If you don't reach your fundraising target

    There are lots of great ways to boost your fundraising, such as organising a cake sale, dinner party or film night.

    We can support you with your fundraising. Contact us at communityscotland@shelter.org.uk

    Should you wish to pay the remaining sponsorship yourself, we're also happy to accept personal donations.

    Each skydiver must have raised at least £500 one week before their jump, or the jump may have to be cancelled or postponed.

    Gift Aid on donations to Shelter Scotland

    Please encourage your donors to include Gift Aid in their donations. It’s a fantastic way to help us raise extra funds and be there for more people who are living in unsafe housing conditions.

    If your event has a fundraising target, Gift Aid does not count towards it.

    If you can't take part

    Please email communityscotland@shelter.org.uk if you cannot take part in your event.

    We cannot offer refunds on the registration fee but we can change the date of your jump.

    If you've already started fundraising online with JustGiving, ask your donors if they're still happy for their donation to be passed on to Shelter Scotland. If they are, your online funds are automatically sent to us.

    Your donors can request a refund from JustGiving if they no longer wish to donate.

    We cannot fight homelessness without your help
