Walk Leader's RA Form

Walk Leaders planning to allow more than 5 walkers to join their walk (ie a total of 6 including themselves) are required by the LDWA's National Executive to complete a risk assessment form

For a total number of 6 or less the completion of a risk assessment form is not necessary.

The maximum limit for any social walk is currently 30 including the leader. Below this maximum a walk leader is perfectly free to define the limit on his/her walk and simply indicate to an enquiring participant that 'sorry but the walk is currently full' when that limit is reached.

The national guidelines for leading a walk have been updated and provide useful information for both experienced leaders and those relatively new to the scene.
