Introducing The Big Stroll

Walking is great for our mental and physical health, and walking in groups is a great way to build social connections and help people get to know their local community.

The Big Stroll is a new walking programme from Pushing Ahead, with support from Active Norfolk. It helps community groups to organise, promote, and lead their own community walks.

Get your community walk started off on the right foot using the tools and training from the Big Stroll, including:

access to community grants of up to £300

a communications toolkit to help you promote your Big Stroll

an online walk leader training module so you can lead with confidence

A Big Stroll is about more than just a walk though. It’s about meeting new people, socialising, and enjoying the mental and physical benefits of walking amongst the beautiful scenery, trails, coastal paths, and lovely villages that Norfolk has to offer.

The deadline for grant applications is 29th November, and to be eligible for funding your Big Stroll must take place between 30th September and 31st December 2019.
