About Us

At Outdoor People we have a passion for camping, picnicking, festivals, walking, scrambling, hiking up mountains, wandering round cities, playing in the street, lying in hammocks, building dens, making mud pies and staring at clouds...

We're a social enterprise, with a mission to make the outdoors easy for everyone, and in particular for families, kids and communities. We sell great outdoors kit in our shop, run projects for local residents, and offer consultancy to organisations that share our mission.

Outdoor People shop

We have beautiful kit for picnics in the parks, festivals or camping trips. We also stock great stuff for travelling, doing yoga or simply hanging out with your friends.

The shop is based at Netil Market, 13-23 Westgate Street, Hackney, E8 3RL

Please note - for the foreseeable future, the shop on Netil Market will be closed, but please do browse and buy online.

    Outdoor People consultancy

    Cath Prisk, our director, has a wide range of contacts from a varied career so as well as her skills, we  can put together groups of experts where needed to ensure projects that make the outdoors easy are successful. We are equally at home working on global campaigns, national policy-making and campaigns, keynote speeches, fundraising or training.

    Outdoor People projects and events

    We launched on 10 May 2013 in Snowdonia, during the wettest and stormiest weekend of the year - as you can see on the blog! Since then we have run many successful projects which help families and children to get outside.
