The story

 

Clarity Walk was founded by Matt Wallace in August 2019 using the methods which helped him recover from depression. These methods were taking time away from digital devices, spending more time in nature and connecting regularly with others.

It is our mission to bring people together in nature with our activities to build stronger, more connected communities to reduce isolation, anxiety and depression.

 

“Nobody should have to walk alone”

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 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.

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.

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.

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 2023.
