Walking for Health coming to Newcastle

Walking for Health is a national scheme to get more people walking. Active Newcastle are setting up the scheme in Newcastle and have already began to train volunteer leaders, set up new routes and are planning a launch event in the very near future.

Our first set of volunteers took part in a walk leadership course at Jesmond Dene and we will be holding another training day in January (date: tbc). As a walk leader you will learn how to lead a group effectively and get guidance and support to set up your own walk or to lead an already existing walk. For more information please go to www.walkingforhealth.org.uk or email liz.jackson@newcastle.gov.uk or david.luke@newcastle.gov.uk from the Active Newcastle Team.

We are also launching new walks across the city. To see what walks are available now and to keep up to date with new walks go to:
