This is the second in a series of blogs looking at how voluntary and community organisations helped with funding from GM Walking Grants, have adapted to help their community during Covid 19.
Starling had been successful in applying for a grant from GM Walking Grants scheme to run some group walks. However, unable to bring people together during lockdown, they have adapted their plans to develop a sensory booklet.
The Sensory Walks booklet hopes to encourage people to walk as staying at home can be an assault on the senses. Walking can be a calming experience for neurodivergent young people.
The pack has been posted out to families and focuses on 1 sense at a time.
