Stratford-on-Avon District Council's Health Walks scheme was set up to increase the number of local people who walk to maintain or improve their health and wellbeing. The scheme is accredited by Ramblers Walking for Health.
The scheme relies on volunteers to lead short health walks in the district on weekdays. We currently provide walks in the following locations: Bidford-on-Avon, Shipston-on-Stour, Shottery, Stratford-upon-Avon, Southam and Wellesbourne (these walks are currently not taking place, find out more here). Walks typically last between 30 minutes and 90 minutes. No experience is necessary as full training is provided for free (this training is nationally recognised and a certificate of attendance is provided). First aid training is not required but is recommended by Ramblers Walking for Health.
To hear why volunteer walk leaders recommend the role, please watch this YouTube video.
