Sensory walks help people with complex impairments engage with nature, using their senses to connect with their surroundings and have meaningful experiences. 

The Making Walks Sensory resource includes advice on planning walks, tips on encouraging mindfulness and suggested sensory activities. 

The resource is primarily designed for all people who support disabled people, whether they are teachers, parents, siblings, carers, support staff, volunteers or walk leaders. All activities have been created with people with complex impairments in mind and are applicable for all ages.
