Walking In Your Community

How can I be involved?

Set up a walking group

Anyone can set up a Walking In Your Community Group. 

You may already be part of an established community group, association or club with an interest in establishing a walking group within this.  Alternatively you may want to set up a walking group in your local area in order to attract a new group of friends and people living in the area to get walking. 

To establish your Walking In Your Community Group, ascertain the interest in a walking programme and consider who to nominate for Community Walk Leader training.

More information on setting up your new group.

Become a Community Walk Leader 

Community Walk Leaders are the individuals within a Walking In Your Community Walking group, who are trained and insured to lead a programme of walks in their local area.  If the Community Walk Leader is part of an existing community group or organisation, they must be nominated by their organisation for the training.  In some organisations there may be more that one Community Walk Leader.

Become a Community Walk Tutor

A Community Walk Tutor trains Community Walk Leaders through the delivery of the one day introductory walk leadership training course and other training modules.

As well as the many benefits to becoming a Community Walk Tutor, there is a minimum requirement to hold either the Mountain Leader (ML) certificate or Walking Group Leader (WGL) certificate as well as a current First Aid certificate.
