Walk Leader - Old Kilpatrick

  • VO86650


Description

We are looking for welcoming and enthusiastic volunteers to lead and support short health and social walks in West Dunbartonshire - these walks are based in Alexandria, Dumbarton, Old Kilpatrick and in Clydebank.

Becoming a volunteer walk leader requires you to commit around an hour or two of your time weekly and to sometimes complete a small amount of preparation & paperwork for the walk.

Health walks encourage people who have not exercised for a while, find walking boring, or lack confidence to join a walking group because they think they will not be able to keep up. The walks are free, short, low intensity, safe and social around the local environment.

Over the next year we plan to build upon our network of gentle exercise activities across West Dunbartonshire as part of the Walking Friendly West Dunbartonshire partnership. To help us achieve this we are looking for friendly and supportive volunteers who enjoy walking, meeting new folk while sharing the wide-range health and well-being benefits of gentle physical activity.

Volunteers all receive Paths for All Walk Leader training to give them the skills and confidence to lead walks in your community. Further training can lead to you to becoming a Dementia Friendly Walk Leader.

You will be encouraged to join a Health Walk and chat to a Health Walk leader before your training so that you have an idea of how it works on the ground.

Volunteer walk leaders receive on-going support from the Health Walk coordinator.
