The story


My name is Matt Wallace and I am the founder of the social enterprise Clarity Walk. It is our aim to improve mental health and wellbeing through Digital Detox walks and activities. The idea was inspired by what helped me recover from depression back in 2017. These methods were getting off my phone, walking daily and connecting with others.

Over the years I refined these methods and in 2019 I wanted to support others in the similar way so I created the UK’s first Digital Detox walk and have been supporting others ever since.

Listen to my story below:


VIsion

 

Over the next 5 years we are going to support 10000 people to improve their mental health and wellbeing by bringing people of all ages together in nature.

We believe collaborating with local and national businesses, charities and schools will help us create the biggest impact.

 

 

Inclusivity

We believe everyone should experience a Digital Detox walk so we have designed Clarity Walk to have walks for all abilities, transport systems for those that don't drive and referral programs to support those referred by GP's counsellors and mental health charities.

Our aims are to become the leading wellbeing provider for walking activities.

Volunteering opportunities

Clarity Walk is built on volunteers to provide services that matter to the community. Volunteering opportunities provide a sense of purpose and help us reach and support more people to improve their mental health. We have provided over 15 volunteering opportunities to our members to become walk leaders.

EDUCATION AND YOUTH SUPPORT

It is our passion to support children improve their mental health and wellbeing through the power of nature. We have been working with local schools to help children escape their digital devices to learn valuable skills in the forest whilst having fun. Our Digital Detox school programs have supported over 100 children to escape their digital devices.

Teambuilding and corporate

Working with organisations to reduce sick days and workplace stress helps to fund our social mission. We support organisations with our Digital Detox wellbeing program and our unique teambuilding days.

Franchising

To help us reach our goal of supporting 10000 people we are going to franchise across the UK and are looking for 2 pilot franchisees in 2022.
