Ramble Worldwide Outdoor Trust

Walking with purpose

We operate with a wholly charitable ethos, our surplus profit is channelled back into the Ramble Worldwide Outdoor Trust. Our Trust is passionate about making the outdoors more accessible for more people from all communities. We grant funds to many organisations and have recently partnered with Mind Over Mountains, Adaptive Grand Slam and other groups to create an enduring impact on people’s lives and to support them to enjoy the outdoors.

How does our funding work?

Unlike many tour operators, Ramble Worldwide has our own charitable trust which supports a variety of outdoor, walking related or environmental conservation projects. The Trust receives regular applications and gives awards to support groups that encourage responsible outdoor activity, introduce new people to the outdoors and have long-lasting benefits. We focus on encouraging both young and old to experience the beauty and rewards that our countryside can bring. Here are just a few of the larger projects we have funded recently:

The Ramblers Don't Lose Your Way

We have provided £400,000 of support to the Ramblers 'Don't Lose Your Way' campaign. This project has found 49,138 miles of rights of way missing from the definitive map in England and Wales, which the Ramblers is now racing to save by 2026.
