The Braveheart Association - Falkirk

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.

Current opportunity

Braveheart are currently recruiting volunteer walk leaders in the Falkirk area. They are looking for people over the age of 18 who are reasonably fit, like walking and enjoy meeting people. If you have a few spare hours per week and would like to encourage and support other people in walking their way to good health on our Braveheart walks, please get in touch.
