Welsh Government Statement on Establishing a Fund for the Residential Outdoor Education (RoE) Sector

Welsh Government Statement on Establishing a Fund for the Residential Outdoor Education (RoE) Sector

A fund will be established to support the residential outdoor education sector in Wales with an initial allocation of £2m.  This fund will provide eligible centres across Wales with support to cover essential operating costs during the period June to September 2021. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected residential outdoor education centres in Wales, as it has in other nations. Many settings have not been able to resume provision of outdoor learning since March 2020.  Due to the ongoing pandemic and measures in place to reduce the transmission of the virus, outdoor residential centres are likely to continue to be affected.  This not only impacts on the centres, their staff and the economy of the local communities in which they are based, but it also impacts on children and young people who benefit from these residential educational experiences.
