Would you like to help people in your community during the COVID-19 crisis? We've launched Corona Helpers, a new website where individuals can pledge their support and COVID-19 support groups can recruit and manage volunteers. Visit www.corona-helpers.co.uk. This means that we may take a little longer to reply to contact requests about opportunities that are not related to COVID-19 support, so please bear with us and thank you for your patience.

Health Walks Leader

South Somerset District Council

Name: Health Walks Leader
Organisation: South Somerset District Council
Location: Case Services, The Council Offices, Brympton Way, Yeovil, Somerset, BA20 2HT


Health walks are free, short, volunteer led local walks aimed at individuals that want to be more active. There is no need to book, walkers just turn up and are guided around the walk route by the volunteer walk leader. Walks are usually 30 minutes -90 minutes long. The social aspect of the walks is very important and many walks finish with a cup of tea or coffee. Volunteers discover interesting walk routes, lead groups of walkers around a route, keep registers of walkers attendance on each walk, issuing new walkers with outdoor health questionnaires, maintaining a welcoming and friendly atmosphere and responding sympathetically to individual walkers needs.
