Become a volunteer walk leader

Are you interested in helping people living with dementia and their carers get some fresh air and exercise in Dereham or helping offer short walks in Great Yarmouth?

We want to start Memory walks from the Dereham Leisure Centre and short walks from Doctors' surgeries in Great Yarmouth on a weekly basis and are offering training to enable volunteers to gain the skills needed to lead - see poster below for details.

Training in Yarmouth is on May 26 and to be arranged in Dereham once we have enough interest.

If interested please contact Mel Brown at mel.brown@activenorfolk.org for a booking form or call 07766259999. You can also get the booking form at the bottom of the posters below. Please indicate on the form if you are interested in helping in Yarmouth or Dereham.

Changes to the Fit Together programme

Until April 2016, Active Norfolk's Fit Together programme operated across the county offering free walks. Necessary changes have had to be made to meet the requirements of our funding and the focus is now on helping inactive people become more active. Details of these new activities will be advertised here over the coming months.

Some areas are continuing to offer guided walks as Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs) or new Walking for Health volunteer run groups. Please be aware that as the health walks are no longer a county wide project you may need to re-register with the various schemes individually. This can be done if required when you turn up for walks.
