Detailed description


What are the benefits?


Our walk leaders love their roles and tell us fantastic stories about how much they enjoy helping others to get active and get walking. But in case that doesn't convince you, here are some of the other great benefits:

  • Full training with a recognised and well respected scheme.
  • Ongoing support and guidance from your scheme coordinator.
  • Access to resources and equipment to help you fulfil your role.
  • Opportunity to meet new people including like-minded volunteers.
  • Opportunity to discover more of your local area and spend time in the outdoors.
  • Opportunity to be more physically active yourself.


Role responsibilities


As a walk leader, your responsibilities will include:

  • Walking health walk routes beforehand (advance preparation) to make sure you know them.
  • Making sure paperwork like registration forms, risk assessments and registers are completed.
  • Leading and managing walks, sometimes jointly with other walk leaders.
  • Trouble shooting and dealing with problems on walks, with the support of your scheme coordinator.
  • Attending occasional walk leaders' meetings and optional other training.


What time do I need to commit as Walk Leader?


Including travelling, recces, occasional meetings and and paperwork leading a single walk close to home typically takes around 1.5 - 2 hours hours. Typical expectations is to attend at least one walk per month depending on the programme and the numbers of leaders they have.
