Residential outdoor centres are vital educational resources at risk of closure. They have been prevented from operating, receiving no income since March 2020 due to Government guidance preventing school overnights. Centres are permanently shutting which are a loss for generations to come, with £500m loss in revenue so far, projected 15,000 jobs by spring and 50% of outdoor education capacity will be lost.
We have to act now to save our outdoor education centres. The Government must let schools and children take advantage of the great outdoors.
