5 Tips to encourage people outdoors

Prepare your outdoor space to ensure you can use it as often as you desire.

  1. Make sure it is suitable for people who are less steady on their feet, as well as for people in wheelchairs. Use suitable paving for a smooth, level surface.

  2. Encourage people to dress up warmly, keep spare umbrellas, hats, scarves and coats near the door. They can be used to encourage people to brave the weather, even if it is only for a few minutes.

  3. Create a sheltered area where people can keep dry and sheltered from the wind. This can provide a lovely space for people to enjoy a hot drink whilst well wrapped up.

  4. Place bird feeding tables, clearly visible from the windows, near to doorways. This makes it easier for residents to be involved in feeding the birds. Feeders can be brought inside to re-fill and then carried outside to hang.

  5. Add points of interest along the paths. Having somewhere close-by to aim for once outside makes the adventure more desirable.
