Partner Seminar Series: Safeguarding

A video resource capturing the latest seminar in a series held between climbing industry partners. In a huge collaboration between Mountain Training, the BMC, Mountaineering Ireland, Mountaineering Scotland, NICAS and The Association of British Climbing Walls we put together a short series of LIVE informational webinars to help guide and empower the climbing wall industry in the UK.

Overview of Seminar

During this video we’ll explore creating safe spaces for climbers through insights from our expert panel, including Craig Chalmers of Children 1st, Catherine Hibbitt from Mountaineering Ireland, and Helen Murphy of the BMC. Get to grips with the nuts and bolts of safeguarding, and explore responsibilities, legislation, risks and who is involved. Hear about safeguarding cultures, recognising concerns, and why the voice of children and young people is important.
