Stepping Out: Walks for Carers

If you’re an enthusiastic walker or a carer looking after someone in your family, we are offering the opportunity to join us every month in a relaxed, fun, sociable and scenic walk in gorgeous Kent countryside or along the coastline.  The idea is to help carers get fit, make friends, exchange stories or just soak up a few moments of peaceful contemplation in the midst of their understandably hectic lives.

The walks are specially designed to suit a wide variety of walking abilities and carers may come with the people they care for or simply come along on their own.  We particularly need knowledgeable and sociable walkers, like the Ramblers, who are invited to lend their support in many ways including: insight, enthusiasm, chat and exhaustive knowledge of tearoom cakes honed over years of Kentish exploration.

The 2017 programme of walks ended with the event at Aylesford Priory on 27 October.  The project is now being independently reviewed and evaluated so that decisions can be taken about whether to run one or more programmes in 2018.  When we have news, we will post it here.

With grateful thanks to Sport England for supporting this new venture and to our much-appreciated ambassadors including Baroness Tanni Grey Thompson, one of the greatest British Paralympians of all time.
