Development of the Outdoor Education (Wales) Bill - Children and Young person's consultation

Purpose of the consultation

On 10 May 2023, Sam Rowlands MS launched a consultation, specifically aimed at children and young people, on his proposal for a new law on the provision of residential outdoor education in Wales (the Outdoor Education (Wales) Bill). The consultation is scheduled to close on 23 June 2023.   


This new law seeks to make it a requirement for local authorities to ensure that all young people receiving maintained education are provided with the opportunity to experience residential outdoor education, for at least one week, at some stage during their school years.


The Bill will also make it a requirement for providers of maintained education to be allocated funding to enable them to do this.


The consultation now invites children and young people to engage directly on the Bill and give their views on what the new law could do. They can do this by using the following things:
