Our group walks are led by friendly, trained volunteers who are on hand to provide encouragement and support, and make sure no one gets left behind.

Our walks are short and over easy terrain. They are open to everyone, but are especially aimed at those who are least active.

Walk for physical health

Exercise is one of the best things we can do for our bodies. Not only will you feel better, but exercise has major health benefits – physical and mental. Walking is one of the best forms of exercise – and you can do it anywhere, at any time. Walking can help to manage and prevent a range of health conditions. It has benefits for your heart, lungs and blood pressure. It burns calories and can help you manage your weight, reduces fatigue, helps you sleep better and can ease joint pain.

Walk for mental health

The benefits of walking to mental wellbeing and in managing mental health conditions are well established.  Walking improves mood, reduces stress, anxiety and depression. Regular walking protects your mental wellbeing and keeps your brain working well as you get older. When we take exercise outdoors by walking, being in nature brings additional benefits to our mental wellbeing.

Walk for social health

Walking in groups has been shown to have additional benefits to our mental wellbeing. It combats loneliness, increases your relationships with other people and helps you feel connected in your community. So, joining one of our walks gives you the health benefits of walking – physical, mental and social – all at once.

Our calendar of walks is shown below.

If you wish to book onto Walking for Wellbeing walks you will need to register as a walker first, so that we have important information that will help us manage the walking programme safely and effectively.
