Our beliefs and why our company was founded
Our carers and those they support have been directly responsible for shaping Stepping Out walks in ways that make most sense for them. Carers asked to be able to come on their own or with the person they care for. Some needed free transport to get to the venues. They wanted lunch to chat and relax after the physical exertions. They needed to feel part of a welcoming community. They definitely appreciated the walk leaders and volunteers who kept them safe and were great for chatting. They wanted lunch, including cake, as a special time to bond post-exercise. They wanted something that could overcome the lack of time, motivation and isolation that is so often the fate of unpaid carers. So that is what we have continued to do, expanding from Kent into Greater Manchester, Doncaster and Hertfordshire. Now we’re apart of the vital NHS Social Prescribing campaign.
