The English Outdoor Council is an umbrella body for organisations involved in the provision of outdoor education, recreation and development training.  Its work involves:

  • lobbying for opportunities for outdoor learning for all young people, including those who could not afford to experience these without financial support
  • promoting the benefits of progressive outdoor experiences
  • arguing for a balanced view of risks and benefits and an adventurous approach to life
  • encouraging high quality, sustainable provision, with proportionate safety assurance
  • maintaining a future focus on behalf of the outdoor sector
