Walking the Way to Health

Unfortunately, Stella Goddard was unable to attend the expert hearings at short notice but has kindly provided a copy of her presentation.

Stella Goddard is the Project Manager for Walking the Way to Health. Walking the Way to Health (WHI) is the largest national body promoting led health walks. It is a joint initiative between Natural England and the British Heart Foundation. The main aim of WHI is to encourage people, particularly those who take little exercise, to get involved in regular, short walks and to access their local green spaces. Using volunteers to deliver led health walks provides a viable, replicable way to provide sustainable health walks. The main topics covered are: why involve volunteers and advantages to both the organisation, walk leaders and participants. The presentation also highlighted the needs of volunteers, such as having their costs reimbursed, knowing what is expected of them, and knowing who can help them, along with support offered to volunteers through networks, advice and walk leader training.
