FOR PROVIDERS:

The British Activity Providers Association has over 30 years experience of working with providers of school activity courses, adventure activities, day camps and other activity providers. It is a trade association run by providers for providers and their customers. It is acknowledged, respected and consulted by members of the outdoor industry, relevant Government departments, regulatory bodies and the media. Over the years it has amassed a wealth of information and guidance which is a benefit to any provider and which is now captured in the BAPA Members Code of Practice. It addresses practical problems in a practical way. It provides information, support and accreditation for members that comply with the benchmark standards of its Code of Practice. We support and encourage new members to help them meet the nationally recognised accreditation standards, as well as offering consultancy and training opportunities to help them build stronger and more resilient businesses, whether they are a commercial provider or a charitable trust or a single person provider.

FOR CUSTOMERS:

Before a provider can become a full member of BAPA and display the appropriate badge, its site(s) must have been inspected and passed a complete inspection. Members have to agree to abide by the detailed BAPA Code of Practice which stipulates the Association’s high standards of safety, value for money and customer service. Centres are also subject to independent inspection which take place at least every two years. Occasionally, BAPA Inspectors will also carry out unannounced inspections on a member’s site. BAPA membership is an indication to schools, parents and other customers that the provider is taking its responsibilities seriously and should deliver a quality product.
