The Active Friends Scheme aims to provide our residents the opportunity to walk with one of our Active Friends Volunteers, to encourage and motivate you to go outside into a safe environment.

Walking is simple, free and suitable for all ages and most activities making it one of the easiest physical activity options. Regular walking, at a moderate pace, can also have a positive impact on your physical, mental and social health.

The Fitness Friend Volunteer would call to arrange a suitable date and time. The Fitness Friend Volunteer would then meet you at your house and undertake some form of gentle exercise. This could be a walk around the block or the local park.

If you are interested in having a Fitness Friend Volunteer, please contact Helen Smith.
