Ramblers wellbeing walks – walk leader

Ramblers Wellbeing Walks have the goal for everyone to have access to a friendly, short group walk within easy reach of where they live, to help them become and stay active! To do this we need people to share their enthusiasm for the benefits of walking with others in their community by leading walks in your local area. You’ll work with the coordinator and other walk leaders in your area to deliver a range of accessible walks that enable people to bring activity into their lives and feel the benefits.

Walk leader role invovles:

  • Working with the coordinator to plan suitable walks
  • Agreeing and committing to dates to lead walks on
  • Record numbers attending the walks
  • Welcome and include all walkers on the walk
  • Being responsible for the group during the walk, making sure everyone is kept safe and accounted for
  • If any accident or incident happens on the walk, report it quickly

Ramblers wellbeing walks gives people the opportunity to:

  • Receive training and gain experience, confidence and new skills
  • Share the enjoyment of walking with others
  • Give back to your local community
  • Meet people and make friends
  • Help people access and explore their local area
