  • VO75745
  • Suitable for groups


Description

Braveheart Association is looking for new volunteers to support their weekly and monthly walks across the Falkirk District. Walks, have been agreed in advance, are in and around the community and can last from 30mins to 1.5 hours. Some walks happen each week while there are also monthly walks.
Braveheart Association aims to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals throughout the community and supports people with long term health conditions, sensory impairments, and mental health to become more physically and socially active in their communities.

Organisation aims and objectives

Braveheart is a small charity, operating in the Forth Valley area of Scotland, which provides self management support groups and a led walking programme to adults with or at risk of developing long term health problems, particularly coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Braveheart's model is unique to the UK. It is entirely volunteer led, and it takes a community development approach. Brave heart trains lay volunteers, many of whom have long term health conditions themselves and it involves them as leaders. Our approach is to engage with " high risk" individuals in non clinical settings such as community centres and church halls to support and encourage them to take responsibility for improving their health
