As a Volunteer Walk Leader, you would be helping people in your community to get active and healthy, providing vital support that they otherwise might not get. As well as ensuring walks are friendly, safe and well run, Walk Leaders are also ambassadors for walking, their scheme, Groundwork Northamptonshire and Walking for Health - showing people that walking really can make a big difference to their lives. There are various Walk locations and and we always interested to develop walks in new locations. Leading the walk would take about 2-3 hours to include checking the route beforehand, meeting and greeting walkers and perhaps staying for cuppa at the end, however you would not need to commit to every week.

Skills

The main skill we need from Volunteer Walk Leaders is clearly demonstrated enthusiasm for walking and its benefits.
