Mountain Training Cymru

Mountain Training Cymru’s role is to provide skills training and qualification schemes for individuals, leaders, instructors and coaches of groups participating in mountaineering and related activities, to offer advice and promote good practice among the mountaineering community within Wales.

Mountain Training Cymru works alongside Mountain Training England, Mountain Training Scotland, Mountain Training Board Ireland and Mountain Training UK under the collective group name of Mountain Training.  We work collaboratively and share a collective vision.

Mountain Training is the collection of awarding bodies for skills courses and qualifications in walking, climbing and mountaineering in the UK and Ireland.  Our vision is to create a diverse and active outdoor society, supported by inspirational leaders, instructors and coaches.  To achieve this we will inspire, enable and develop people in walking, climbing and mountaineering through the provision of nationally and internationally recognised skills training and leadership qualifications.

Lake District Search & Mountain Rescue Association

The Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association is the umbrella body for mountain rescue teams in Cumbria (UK).

  • Covers the Lake District and Cumbria
  • 12 member teams
  • A registered charity solely funded by voluntary contributions

Teams are largely autonomous, but LDSAMRA coordinates the development of operational matters such as radio communications and insurance, as well as the day to day running of an efficient, voluntary rescue service. It also distributes to the teams any donations or legacies received and makes special allowances for major projects such as building extensions.

Outdoor Partnership cy

The Outdoor Partnership

The Outdoor Partnership is a registered charity improving lives through outdoor activities.

The Outdoor Partnership is unique in that no other comparable organisation exists in the UK with the same vision and mission of improving opportunities for more people in Wales to achieve their potential through outdoor activities.  The outcomes of Outdoor Partnership’s programmes are currently a benchmark for other regions in Wales, the UK and further afield.

Since its establishment the Outdoor Partnership has established sustainable, community-led outdoor activity clubs across North Wales; provided NGB qualifications for over 4000 volunteer leaders with a SROI of £10 million; created over 100,000 outdoor activity opportunities on a county, regional and national level through participation, education, volunteering and employment programmes, improving people’s health, social and economic well-being.  The charity’s programmes have increased the number of indiginous Welsh speaking instructional staff in North Wales over the last 10 years from 4{fc74b453b6412e31f74ef336ecac03f4e64cfcecac14a2bbe73b4bb7d03301d5} to 25{fc74b453b6412e31f74ef336ecac03f4e64cfcecac14a2bbe73b4bb7d03301d5} (Bangor University research 2003 & 2013).

Snowdonia National Park

Snowdonia National Park

The Snowdonia National Park is a special part of the country where people come to relax and enjoy a wide range of leisure activities in spectacular surroundings.

Snowdonia’s landscape is unique. The nine mountain ranges cover approximately 52{fc74b453b6412e31f74ef336ecac03f4e64cfcecac14a2bbe73b4bb7d03301d5} of the Park and include many peaks that are over 3,000 feet (915m). Apart from the beauty and charm of its high mountains, Snowdonia is a delightfully varied landscape of steep river gorges, waterfalls and green valleys. Oak, ash, rowan and hazel woodlands are found scattered throughout the Park whilst the beautiful Dyfi, Mawddach and Dwyryd estuaries and 23 miles of coastline and sandy beaches contribute to the overall diversity of the landscape.

Every year, we welcome over 6 million visitors to the area. If you’re thinking of visiting us, log onto the National Park website for some great information on how to make the best of your visit: www.eryri.llyw.cymru
