Safeguarding…

All walkers are briefed before the walk not to walk alone.

Walkers under 18 years of age must have consent from a parent or guardian to walk, and an emergency contact number must be given on the young person’s registration form.

Walkers under 16 years of age are only permitted to walk in the care of a responsible adult. The adult must be named on the young person’s registration form.

If a walker under 16 years of age is injured during the walk then the responsible adult must remain with the young person until appropriate help arrives or is provided.
