Enjoy a short walk with a volunteer

Come for a walk with us, at your own pace, near your home

This free service aims to help older people living in Northampton who would like to benefit from regular exercise but feel nervous going out by themselves.

We provide a friendly volunteer to visit you once a week and go for a short walk with you in your local area .

By giving encouragement and friendly support, the walking befriender can help people overcome barriers which might be preventing them from being active in later life.  Our support can help you regain your confidence.

Walking has been proved to be the safest activity for older people to improve their health.  We hope you, or your older relative, will enjoy getting outdoors with us, especially if a long-term health conditions or a disability is discouraging you from getting regular exercise.
