Magic of Walking

This is national walking month when we celebrate the health and happiness benefits of walking and wheeling more.

Throughout the month, we’ll be asking people to #Try20 and fit 20 minutes of walking into their day. This year, we’re inviting you to discover the #MagicOfWalking and celebrate the many health and happiness benefits of walking and wheeling. This includes joining us in our walk to school week on the 20th – 24th May.

It’s never too early to establish healthy habits. 

Little Feet is our range of walking activities for children aged 2-5 years old, designed specifically for use in early years settings.

Little Feet resources are perfect for introducing the benefits of walking to young children and their families, encouraging them to adopt healthy walking habits through topics linked to the Early Learning Goals.

To learn more take a look at the Little Feet website.

ParentLine logo

Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust runs a confidential secure text messaging service for parents of children aged 0-5 years called ParentLine. The service operates Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 4.30pm in Brighton & Hove and Monday to Friday between 9am to 4.30pm in West Sussex, excluding bank holidays. All texts will be responded to by a health visitor within 24 hours. Outside of the service working hours, you’ll receive a message back to inform you that your text will be responded to once the line reopens.

Should you require urgent health advice in the meantime, please contact your GP, visit an NHS walk-in centre or call NHS 111. For emergencies, dial 999 or visit A&E.
