Entering partnership with Ordnance Survey

We’re delighted to announce a new partnership with Ordnance Survey. Ordnance Survey have been mapping Great Britain since 1791 and to this day are the nation’s go to for geospatial navigation tools, including hiking and cycling maps and innovative technology products.


Many of us are becoming increasingly more aware of the link between physical and mental health. Whether it’s walking with family in the local park, mountaineering or camping, plenty of us treasure moments outside because of how good they make us feel. Crucially, Ordnance Survey’s work in the geospatial sector, allows people to be able to enjoy and make the most of the outdoors, keep active and maintain good physical health.

"As mental health experts we know that getting outdoors, taking in your surroundings and connecting with others are all central to improving and maintaining good mental health. This is why we are so thrilled to be partnering with Ordnance Survey.

By working together over the next two years, Mental Health UK and Ordnance Survey will be able to positively impact the lives of people across the UK. Together we’ll help people to develop positive habits that can improve both physical and mental wellbeing.

At Mental Health UK, we won't stop until everyone has the tools they need to live their best possible lives. We’re so glad Ordnance Survey are joining us on this journey."

– Caroline Crowther, Director of Fundraising

"We are delighted to have found a charity partner in Mental Health UK who share our vision of showing the world how to get to a better place through helping people and communities connect with other people and be more physically active to improve our health. At OS we are also passionate about the outdoors and the enormous physical and mental health benefits it can bring.

We want to help people re-engage with the outdoors and demonstrate that it is enjoyable, accessible, and safe for all ages and abilities. We are proud to be sharing our authoritative data with Mental Health UK to better enable them to support people affected by mental health and help them get outside."

– Hazel Hendley, Ordnance Survey HR Director

Ordnance Survey recognised the opportunity they have to help people both understand and experience why being outdoors benefits our mental health, and as the UK’s mental health charity with presence in all four nations, we’re excited to support them in delivering this message nationally.

Our work with Ordnance Survey will see us support employees to connect in the outdoors through fun fundraising activities, enjoying the benefits getting active has to offer. We can’t wait to see what we’ll be achieving together, throughout our two year partnership.
