Views on the Outdoors – A survey for families with children under 5
Active Cumbria are working in partnership with 4 other Active Partnerships from around the country to understand how to get more families with children under 5 using the outdoors. The outdoors has many benefits including improved mood, focus, sleep, activity levels, lowered stress levels and blood pressure and it can help to connect people to their community.
We want to explore what prevents families from using the outdoors and what would encourage people to spend more time outdoors with their children.
We are looking to reach as many local families with children under 5 as possible through a short online survey which can be accessed here. By gaining as much insight as we can, it will help shape a future project which aims to improve people’s health and wellbeing through spending more time outdoors.
