Pre-existing Medical Conditions

How We Do It

For insurance purposes we must register any pre-existing medical conditions; we will contact your course co-ordinator a few weeks before your event with joining instructions (a request that they confirm all attendees have read the information below, and to gather details of any pre-existing medical conditions and dietary requirements).

Dietary Requirements

Your course co-ordinator will also ask you to declare dietary requirements, such as vegan, vegetarian, coeliac and allergies.  Please note that it is a legal requirement for you to advise us of any allergies as we do not provide menus to select from, so your meal(s) may otherwise contain the following if we are not informed ahead of your visit:
  • Cereals containing gluten namely wheat (such as spelt and Khorasan wheat), barley, rye and oats
  • Crustaceans like prawns, crabs, lobster and crayfish etc
  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Peanuts
  • Soybeans
  • Milk
  • Nuts namely almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecan nuts, Brazil nuts, pistachio, cashew, Macadamia or Queensland nut
  • Celery
  • Mustard
  • Sesame
  • Sulphur dioxide or sulphites (where added and is >10mg/kg in the finished product.  Often found in dried fruit and wine)
  • Lupin
  • Molluscs like clams, scallops, squid, mussels, oysters and snails etc

Challenge by Choice

We operate a CbC policy which is simple in principle, but complex in practice and reality. The simple principle is that you are invited to participate voluntarily in each of the various activities and challenges of a programme. A participant may choose to sit out an activity and this right is to be respected by others in the group and by the instructors.jrp_130415_150

The CbC principle is generally explained and understood as part of the Full Value Contract (FVC), to help create a group culture which genuinely respects the right of an individual to choose with regard to a degree of participation in any activity. CbC can be used to help reinforce the message that an individual is to exert and take personal responsibility choosing his/her behaviours and actions. Further, the principle recognises that individuals potentially stand to learn and grow more by refusing to participate on occasions than unthinkingly and/or resentfully always participating.
