Volunteers Walk Leader Training

Stafford Borough Council, which delivers a range of weekly health walks as part of its WalkWise programme, needs volunteers to help lead them and is organising a training event for those interested next month.  Once qualified you can assist with walks that are already taking place or you can set up a new walk within your local community with support from myself.

Weekly walks currently take place in Great Haywood, Little Haywood, Stone, Victoria Park, Hixon, Gnosall, Holmcroft, Milford, Derrington and Castlefields.

Volunteer walk leaders are good communicators who can help get others active and ensure walks are friendly, safe and well run. 

The Council provides the training for free in addition to ongoing support, resources and equipment to assist volunteers once they have qualified.

The training event is being held on Thursday 1st June at Rising Brook Community Fire Station, Hesketh Road, Stafford, ST17 9NF

Those interested in attending should contact Richard Upton, Health and Wellbeing Community Development Officer at Stafford Borough Council, on 01785 619675 or email walking@staffordbc.gov.uk
