Do you have the enthusiasm to encourage more people to be more active in their local communities? Would you like to set up walking routes in your area ? Can you help people to find their local park or a way to walk their children to school? This project aims to encourage more people to be more active outdoors in their local communities through walking independently on Medal Routes (short circular walks of approx 15, 30 and 60 minutes duration starting and finishing at a Walking Hub) and, in time, on other local paths.
Walking Hubs are places where people gather and where the short circular Medal Routes walks start and finish, for example a library, a café, a health centre. We are looking for volunteers to raise awareness of the walking hub in their local area, ensuring hubs have appropriate marketing materials, publicising taster walks, encouraging people to walk the routes and liaising with ‘taster walk’ organiser as required.
Access to the internet is essential as the ability to keep a record of hours volunteered, and a commitment to maintain all confidentialities at all times.
