Discover a new world with Sensory Walks

New partnership with Ordnance Survey puts routes for people with complex disabilities on the map

Sense Active have partnered with Great Britain's national mapping agency, Ordnance Survey, to ensure Sensory Walks are easily discoverable via their OS Maps App, as part of our Sport England funded project 'Sense, Active Together'.

Sensory Walks enable people with complex disabilities to explore the outdoors and engage more meaningfully with nature. 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.

The maps are available via the free OS Maps App using either your web browser or can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Find and enjoy a Sensory Walk near you

As of the 21st April 2021, you can discover Sensory Walks routes local to you. To find a walk or to download the OS Maps App, please visit: https://www.sense.org.uk/get-support/arts-sport-and-wellbeing/sense-sport/our-programme/sensory-walks/.
