BMC Mission Statements

Posted by Kate Anwyl on 11/12/2010

There are three main Mission Statements that apply to the work of the BMC.

BMC Mission Statement
The BMC promotes the interests of climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers and the freedom to enjoy their activities. Through a democratic structure the BMC will:

  • Negotiate access improvements and promote cliff and mountain conservation.
  • Promote and advise on good practice, facilities, training and equipment.
  • Support events and specialist programmes including youth and excellence.
  • Provide services and information for members.

Our Participation Statement
"The BMC recognises that climbing, hill walking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement."

Our Equity Statement
"The BMC encourages its members to adopt a positive approach to equal opportunities and the elimination of discrimination. The BMC values the support of all sections of the mountaineering community and welcomes the opportunity to assist all groups in its work to promote the interests of climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers."

As a national body promoting the interests of climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers and the freedom to enjoy their activities the BMC strives to ensure that:

  • All BMC representatives and staff, individual members, affiliated clubs and other mountaineering bodies feel encouraged to take a positive approach to equal opportunities and strive to eliminate discrimination.
  • All sections of the mountaineering community feel encouraged to take part in and support the work of the BMC.
  • Whenever possible in BMC publications images are used to reflect a wide and diverse membership.
