Outdoor Learning in the South & Channel Islands

The Southern Region includes the beautiful coast, lakes, rivers, downs, open countryside, city centres and two National parks spread across the counties of Hampshire, West and East Sussex, Kent, Surrey, London, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire along with the Isle of Wight and Channel Islands. We have a great array of environments used by our members, from rural open spaces, dramatic coastlines, to open country and city centre provision. The region has a strong outdoor learning community with many centres and freelancers operating in the very diverse and active region.

The voluntary committee represents IOL in your region, get in touch with us. We wish to represent your views.

Funded mountaineering and climbing programmes in the Scottish Highlands for young people

The Martin Moran foundation

The Martin Moran foundation is a charity set up in the name of mountain guide and exploratory climber, Martin Moran.

We offer week long, fully funded mountaineering and climbing programmes in the Scottish Highlands with all travel, accommodation and professional instruction included. The successful applicants are provided with a full set of mountaineering clothing and equipment, from our sponsor Mountain Equipment, to take away with them.

There are 8 places available on this year's programme and we are looking for young people aged 16 - 18 who have shown a passion for the mountains but struggle to access them due to barriers or challenges such as financial or family situations.

If you know of any young people who would benefit from this experience, you can nominate them to be put forward for a place on this year's programme in October 2022.

I have attached an information pack about our work and how to make a nomination. You can also find out more about us at
