Inclusive Climbing Leaders Volunteering

We are excited to announce that we have secured generous funding from the University's Cascade Grants programme, the British Mountaineering Council & Alpkit to enable the running of regular Inclusive Climbing Sessions at the David Ross Sports Village climbing wall.

The team behind this project are Mike Smith (Climbing Wall Manager) and Hannah Webber (Disability Sport Officer). Both are based at the David Ross Sports Village and are passionate about sport, especially helping those less able to try sport, whatever their ability.

The sessions are part of the Engage programme and will be delivered every Sunday afternoon during term time.

We are now recruiting volunteers who are passionate about climbing and who can spare a few hours on a Sunday to help deliver the sessions during the 18-19 Academic term. Training for the programme will be available in October. These dates will be dependent on volunteer availability and experience.

Please note that we do understand that it will be difficult to attend training due to other commitments but ask you try to attend as much as possible.

Dates to be finalised but the project will begin in October and there will be sessions every Sunday during term time. Attendance will be flexible and will work around your studies.

Key responsibilities will include:
Belaying less experienced climbers
Supporting climbers with disabilities

I am enjoying the sessions very much, they definitely provide me with new experiences and helping me to develop my skills. The sessions are pretty well organized and run. The volunteers receive clear instructions and a clear plan of the session.
