Sense Active has partnered with Ordnance Survey to make  an array of tested and approved Sensory Walks available via the Ordnance Survey (OS) Maps App.

Sensory Walks enable people with complex disabilities to explore the outdoors and engage more meaningfully with nature whilst staying active. Each of the OS Maps app routes come with accessibility information including key milestones and sensory highlights that are suitable for people with sensory impairments and complex disabilities.

Sense has also developed resources and training to support people to use their senses to connect with nature.

The walks are designed for people with complex disabilities, but can be enjoyed by anyone. People can go alone or in a group, they don’t need any specialist equipment and the walks can be any length they like. Sensory walks are suitable for those on foot, using a wheelchair or walking – they are inclusive for all.
