Walking For Health Leader

Winchester Health Walks are looking for volunteer walk leaders to support the successful scheme. We have 7 walks which take place every week across the district and we require new volunteers.

As a volunteer walk leader, you’ll be helping people in Winchester to get active and healthy, providing vital support that they otherwise might not get. Walk Leaders plan routes, support walkers and act as ambassadors for walking - showing people that walking really can make a big difference to their lives.

Skills

The main skill we need from our volunteer walk leaders is an enthusiasm for walking and its benefits!  

You don't need any particular experience, but we love our leaders to be friendly and welcoming, with good communication skills; reliable, punctual and well organised; confident at speaking in front of small groups; able to take control and be assertive when needed and observant and sensitive to the needs of others.
