Who is responsible for the safety of young people while completing Pawprint Family activities?
The health and safety of you and your young people always lies with you. Our activities are suggested ideas only and you are encouraged to adapt and change them to meet the needs and abilities of your young people. If at any time you feel an activity is unsuitable or may cause harm or distress you are responsible for stopping the activity. It is important to reassure young people that there is a safe space and people they can speak to should they be affected by any of the issues arising from your activities. Advice and guidance on keeping children safe can be found on the NSPCC website, here. You should follow any health and safety guidance provided by relevant organisations and complete a risk assessment if required. For more information on safety whilst completing your Pawprint Trails please see our conduct policy, here.

Pawprint Trails FAQ’s
There isn’t a Trail near me, will you be adding them in my region?
Initially launching with 4 locations we're adding new ones each month. We've split the UK in to 12 regions, including Northern Ireland and we'll be adding Trails in each location throughout the year with the plan being that we'll continue to add at least one Trail to each region each year.
Do I need to be able to drive to do a Trail?
No! Pawprint Trails are based in locations around the UK and are accessible by road, rail or horse and cart if you're that way inclined! In your order confirmation email we include some useful info to help you get started with your trail so make sure you check that out too...plus you'll need it for your Unique Reference Code which allows you to enter your answers online when you're done.
How do Pawprint Trails work?
Each trail consists of 2 booklets enclosed in a cardboard storage sleeve. Your instruction and answer booklet contains some fun facts to get you started along with instructions on how to record your answers. Your Trail booklet contains all the directions and clues you'll need to take yourself on a guided walk around your chosen location along with a handy map (just incase)! Follow the directions and solve the clues, finding your answers on signs, architectural features, buildings, statues and permanent installations. Before you know it you'll have walked a fair way, seen the sights, discovered some fun facts and earned yourself a brew and a piece of cake!
Who are Pawprint Trails for?
Pawprint Trails are suitable for families, groups, couples or individuals...no young people are required! Pawprint Trails can be used as a fun day out, to fill a few hours, or as part of a longer break. Each Trail gives 'Here's an Idea!' suggestions of other things to see and do on your Trail whilst the map (enclosed in your Trail booklet) contains some 'Extend your Adventure' ideas that will take your further afield. Once you've entered your answers online there's even more activity ideas to keep your adventures flowing. Activity ideas are displayed on the 'Submit an Answer' page once you enter your trail location and answers, these may be crafts, food, games or other adventures in the same style as activities linked to Pawprint Badges.
Pawprint Tales FAQs
Can I buy copies of the Tales for my school/nursery?
Absolutely! Unfortunately we're not able to offer any educational discount at present as our products are as competitively priced as they can be but Pawprint Tales are perfect for sharing with your class or for young people to enj0y on their own.
What age are Pawprint Tales aimed at?
Pawprint Tales are written for readers age 7-11 though the books do include things to spot in the illustrations which is idea for including younger members of the family. Our author Danny is passionate about not dumming things down though so there are some more complicated words thrown in there too. Written in rhyme Pawprint Tales are ideal to share as a family before or after your Trail adventure though they're just as fun for reading alone and Alfie enjoys them too...they're not just for humans!

How does my purchase help support young people?
For every transaction, a percentage of profits will be donated from Pawprint Family brands to The Pawprint Trust. As stated in The Pawprint Trust’s Governing Document, there is an application process every year which offers the opportunity for young people to apply for a grant. Once the application window has closed, the trustees of the Pawprint Trust will make an informed decision in how the funds are distributed and will contact the applicants directly if they have been successful. The personal donations made from Pawprint Badges to the Pawprint Trust underlines our belief in Adventure For All. It is our goal and aim to continue donating funds to The Pawprint Trust to support young people in their fantastic adventures.
