Paths for All aims to ensure everyone can enjoy the benefits of walking, being outdoors and connecting with nature. Never more so than during the Coronavirus pandemic.
During Learning Disabilities Awareness Week 2020 (which took place during the pandemic) we produced an easy read version of our guidance on ‘Walking during periods of Social Distancing’ to help people with learning disabilities stay safe while enjoying the outdoors. The guide was particularly relevant to the year’s theme of ‘My Environment – my place, my planet’.
This guide is aimed primarily at people who have a learning disability and those who care for them. It can also be used by Walking for Health project coordinators to help engage with people with learning disabilities in their local community, and to communicate the message to people whose first language isn’t English or who have low literacy skills.
