Our social media community guidelines

Our guidelines are designed to ensure that social media is a welcoming and friendly space.

The Ramblers is Britain’s walking charity   

We use social media to support our work to break down barriers to the outdoors and open the way for everyone to walk in nature.  Social media is also a place for people to share where they love to walk, ask questions and find advice from the walking community. 

In order to keep things friendly, we ask our community members to follow some simple guidelines: 

  • Be polite, courteous and respectful of others. 
  • Do not post content that is discriminatory, racist, obscene, inflammatory, harassing, hateful, threatening, profane or personally abusive. 
  • Do not post anything that could be libellous or defamatory: if an accusation is made against a named person, for example at a member of staff or a volunteer, we will hide it. 
  • Do not post adverts for commercial products or services. 
  • Do not post about issues that are off topic i.e. spam. 

On Facebook and Instagram we use filters to automatically hide obscenities. We will also use our own discretion to hide comments that go against our guidelines. If we do so, we will comment to let you know this is the case, unless your comments have contravened the policy and we have explained this to you previously. Your comment may still be visible to you, but won't be visible to others using the site. On rare occasions, we may block users from the page if the nature of their comments does not change, but we will always warn you of this and highlight our commenting guidelines before doing so. Facebook's general community guidelines should also be considered when using the site.   

Our social media channels are routinely moderated Monday to Friday.  

A wide path lined with tall trees.
