The aim of 3 Million Miles is to:

  • offer support to those excluded from UK Government Covid-19 financial measures with a well-being and community project that aims to cover 3 million 'people powered' miles telling stories and raising awareness as we walk, run, roll or cycle
  • raise money for a support fund to provide mental health support, counselling, debt advice, business advice and guidance, skills and training

Getting outdoors and moving is an accessible and simple way to help boost well-being and mental health. It will also provide our community of Excluded taxpayers an inclusive opportunity to come together and build support. Our hope is to cover 3 million miles, sharing photos and stories along the way.

 

Lend us your ears to hear our stories, walk in our shoes, and donate if you can to help us keep moving forwards.

 

How it works

We’re asking anyone who can support us to walk, run, roll or cycle a mile, 3 miles, 30 miles or more. You can make ‘donations per mile’ or ask others to donate through ‘sponsored miles’ to help us build up a support fund. You can also, of course, just take part without donations. And participants can encourage their friends and families to help us fundraise as we walk, run, roll or cycle towards our 3 million mile target. To set up your own fundraiser, please click here.

Where will funds raised go?

We've identified a number of areas for which support is much needed and would be valuable in helping people get back on their feet having been excluded from Government Covid-19 financial support. They include mental health support, counselling, debt advice, business guidance and support, skills and training. All funds raised will be sent on support offered through a range of charities and organisations. Full details will be provided in due course when we have an indication as to how much we're able to raise.
