Disciplinary Working Party


In 2021, we were delighted to announce the formation of the Disciplinary Working Party.

Chaired by Director Adam Tanner, the scope for this party was to review Regulation 9 and the connected policies.  In addition, to review the capacity and capability within the organisation and to explore best practices.


The DWP Members are:


Francis Fletcher

Francis has been involved in our Disciplinary Panel for numerous years, is an umpire and after 15 years as a magistrate has a good working knowledge of the law.


Lucy Valerio

Lucy is a qualified lawyer and currently Governing & Compliance Officer of The British Mountaineering Council.  Her role interfaces with the disciplinary side of the BMC’s work and she will bring a good perspective from outside our sport.


Colin Mitchell

Colin has a good working knowledge of our disciplinary regulations processes, and joins the working party as a representative from the County Associations.


The working party will be joined by Jon Cockcroft (Chief Executive) and Helen Slimm as Project Manager.
