UK Outdoors Support Survey Launched

04 Dec 2020

UK Outdoors, the umbrella organisation representing UK outdoor education and activity providers, is asking residential centre owners and operators to complete a survey that aims to identify the immediate and future support requirements of the varied domestic residential outdoor learning business models in the UK.

This information, needed by 9am on Friday 11th December, will provide valuable information for their ongoing dialogue with the Department for Education so that they have informed evidence when discussing the issue within and across government. 

They recognise that whilst education is a devolved issue for Home Nations, ownership or responsibility for outdoor learning organisations and their education services can be UK wide. UK Outdoors are also aware that the UK Treasury has committed to supporting business across the UK, suffering as a result of the pandemic and that not all outdoor learning business have been able to access all potential forms of this support.
