step this way


Life is different in lockdown. You’re at home with your family, but you miss your friends, and maybe even school (just a bit 😊). There’s only so much screen time you can take.


We’ve created this space to help you keep active during this difficult time. Did you know #walkingfromhome can make you feel happier? It’s a great way to take a break from online classes and looking at the same four walls. 

free resources and activities

We'll be releasing new resources and fun materials on a regular basis, so keep coming back for more.

At the moment, the Government says we’re allowed to leave the house for exercise – and this includes walking. Please make sure to keep at least two metres away from others and wash your hands when you get home.

Walk this way

That's so random! Try a randomised walk, using Living Streets’ Walking Randomiser.

My Walking Week

Set your mind on a path to calmness and happiness by taking a walk each day. Use our seven-day journal to write about your walk and how it made you feel.
