The Big Step Out

Everyone is welcome at our first ever sponsored walk to support the UK's invisible home carers, and those they care for!
We’re inviting friends, carers, school children, supporters and well behaved dogs to walk 1, 3, 6 or 12 miles around Bewl Water on Friday 25th June starting at 10am!

Bernard, our Stepping Out mascot dog will also be there to say woof to everyone participating!

We'd love everyone who takes part to raise what they can in sponsorship (we suggest a minimum sponsorship of £1 a mile per person) which will all go towards arranging more fabulous Stepping Out walks across the country.
Our walks are a life-line to so many carers who work tirelessly to look after someone in their own home but have very little time for themselves and often feel isolated. Just being supported to step outside and experience the benefit of Nature can do wonders for carers’ well-being.
There are 151,000 unpaid carers in Kent alone* so anything we can raise through our first ever sponsored walk will be so gratefully received.
How to participate

Our numbers are restricted but if you’d like to come along, we’d love to see you! All we ask if that you register with us (registration is free!) and then commit to raising what you can to support our future walk programme.

 How to sponsor our walkers:

If you can’t come on the day but would like to give a donation to support our walk programme and enable us to put on more Stepping Out walks around the country, please donate via this Go Fund Me page.

It’s a fabulous opportunity to grow with us, support the UK’s hidden home carers and help us grow our walking programme and our awareness across the UK!
