AIM’s support to the Outdoor Sector – Gavin Williamson

School Residential Trips

We know that many providers are affected by the Government Guidelines surrounding school residential trips and felt it was important to show our support and if possible lobby government over the lack of future planning.

In September 2020, our Chairman Andrew Gardiner and Mutual Manager Sophia Reed wrote to Gavin Williamson, Secretary of State for Education to highlight the main issues that need to be addressed to save outdoor provision and to enable many providers to plan and continue the valuable work they do.

We continue to support the work of UK Outdoors and other bodies in the outdoor sector to ensure our voices are heard.
