The Outdoor Guide Foundation has a simple aim; to make the outdoors more accessible for all – particularly children.

For schools planning or wanting to set up an outdoor learning space or simply get kids outside in all weathers,  they should first consider the need for proper clothing – waterproofs and wellies.

Our goal is to donate 10 sets of wellies and waterproofs to every state primary schools in the UK, all 20,000 of them!

All we need now is your help.

Why Waterproofs and Wellies?

Fact: Do you know some children get outside less than prison inmates?

We are in the midst of a physical and mental health crisis, exacerbated by the current pandemic. In reality this equates to 9 children in every state funded class of 30 living below the poverty line. The benefits of getting children outside are well documented and numerous, including:

  • Educational benefits
  • Developing social interaction and empathy
  • Enhancing wellbeing
  • Reducing anger, stress, and anxiety
  • Improving community engagement
  • Increasing physical fitness
To make this happen, we must give children the inspiration and kit to mitigate barriers. However, not having the right kit is a real barrier to many children across the UK – and we want to help change this. The Outdoor Guide Foundation has therefore started this exciting initiative.
