The Big Step Out 2024
12 -25 June 2024

You're Invited!

You are invited to join The Big Step Out this summer,  our national campaign to celebrate carers and the people they care for as well as raising funding for our Stepping Out walks.  It’s time to let unpaid carers know they are not invisible to wider society as they so often feel.  

National Community
Walking Festival

Our national community walking festival to celebrate unpaid carers and the people they care for throughout the UK. Take steps and tell us how many. Let’s see how far we can go to care for carers. 

Walk, wheel, dance, run, trot, play…wherever you are with friends or alone and contribute your steps to our Grand Total. We’ll update that total daily. Dogs’ steps count too. Football clubs can send their match steps, marathoners their running steps, wheelchair users their rotations, horses their hack steps, Strictly fans their dance steps, workers their office steps. we’ll take any and all steps for the cause.

You will be giving real support to the UK’s 10 million unpaid carers who look after someone at home, sometimes without respite, often alone and invisible.


Any time between 12th - 25th June.

How is the money spent

Your gift will mean unpaid carers can enjoy one of our Stepping Out walks and help us highlight the remarkable work they do everyday. Here's some examples of how donations can help:

£5 will buy a lunch for a carer on one of our walks.
£10 will buy lunch for a carer and the person they care for and give them the opportunity to chat to others in similar situations.
£15 will go towards transport for a carer to join a walk.
£50 will allow us to hire an electric wheelchair so that someone with a health problem or disability will be able to join their carer.
