Walk From Home

Walk From Home helps to improve the health and well-being of older people who have lost confidence in walking outdoors because of falls, declining mobility or isolation. The older person will be matched 1:1 with their own volunteer who will visit once a week for 12 weeks to take them on a short walk in their local area.
Referrals are welcomed from anybody involved in the care of older people as well as self or family referrals.
The office is open during normal office hours, but the walks can take place when it is convenient for the service user (including evenings and weekends).
