Learn more about the Stepping Out walks for people who are carers and those they are caring for. An opportunity for a social exchange of stories and conversation, providing valuable exercise, our walks give carers and their charges a couple of hours to get out and about in a sociable setting and enjoy lunch. Our walks would not be complete without Bernard our caring Cockapoo, featured in this short video.
We organised a wonderful scenic walk in September 2018 with many carers and those they care for in the beautiful surroundings of Penshurst Place, Kent. You can hear what they had to say about the glorious day here:
Sports Minister Tracey Crouch joins a Stepping Out walk at Aylesford Priory in Kent. “I think it’s a wonderful project. It’s getting people physically and mentally well but also from loneliness perspective getting people together in a friendship circle. So for me it’s an amazing initiative.”
Kent carer and Stepping Out walker, Lynne Smith, on the ongoing challenges of looking after her brother: “It’s like living two lives.”
