Will the funding for this ensure that all young people get to go to OE centres, especially given that outdoor learning is beneficial for mental health/wellbeing and attainment?

Thanks

Well done , you have managed to make your politicians listen. In our very similar case we made all the same arguments , but our English County Council is following the line of other County Councils, which is : "budget cuts mean they can only supply statutory services". No other arguments will be entertained. It is heartbreaking.

I took children to outdoor camps for many years and it was evident that these experiences enhanced both their education and wellbeing.

I loved my outdoor pursuit trips at school. I experienced many thing that I never would have without them. My favourite being the two canoeing trips in North Wales.
