Walking Friends

Would you like to get out and about in your local community?

Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire, in partnership with Active Herefordshire & Worcestershire, are launching a new project called ‘Walking Friends’.  The project is here to support older people who may benefit from a regular walk with one of our friendly volunteers. A lot of people have experienced bereavement or illness in the last year or so, or are simply feeling cautious about going out again. Walking has been proved to be the safest activity for older people to improve your health and well-being. 

How we can help

Our Walking Friends project offers you a regular walk and an opportunity for a chat with a friendly volunteer. We’ll match you up with a person who lives near you and who also enjoys walking.

This service is free of charge.
