Objectives

As set out in its constitution, Walk the Loop provides services for children and young people (particularly aged 0-8) that promote their holistic development through learning outside the classroom at sites of natural beauty and special interest near or on the London Loop. 

It acts as a resource for disadvantaged children living in the Greater London area who are excluded from society, or parts of society, owing to their social and economic circumstances, by providing recreational and leisure-time services with a view to improving their conditions of life and helping them gain new skills. 

Activities

Walk the Loop runs outdoor activities such as walks, nature trails and scavenger hunts, helping children connect with nature and take part in joyful and purposeful learning experiences that will help ignite a spark that will last a lifetime. These are enriched with indoor arts and crafts activities that help them make sense of what they have experienced and create something memorable to take home. We encourage parent-carers, childminders, teachers and support-workers to join the children in these events so as to enjoy quality time together. This can foster a sense of well-being for all those involved. 

Our activities take place along stretches of the London Loop, an outer Orbital pathway that goes around London, connecting families and communities that are hugely diverse.
