Get active outdoors for the less able

It's a well-known fact that inter-acting with nature has huge health benefits, so consider spending time in your local natural environment. There are many local parks and nature reserves that are usually easily accessible to those who may be less able, as well as ways to volunteer.

Across Surrey there are numerous walking for health groups, some of them offering different levels of walks according to walkers' abilities. You'll be guided by a fully trained walks leader in a group of like-minded, similar ability people.

Take a look also at our easy access walks dotted around the county. There is also further information on the Accessible Countryside for Everyone website.
