Wellbeing Walk Leader Training

The Volunteer Walk Leader training is a free half day course with online module for anyone who would like to volunteer to lead walks or be a backmarker for the Wellbeing Walks scheme, provided locally by OneLife Suffolk. We are now able to offer face to face walk leader training again as well as training online over Zoom.

Ramblers Wellbeing Walks is England’s most extensive network of Wellbeing Walk schemes and helps all kinds of people to lead a more active lifestyle. Our walks are led by friendly and specially trained volunteers who, along with fellow walkers, provide all the advice and encouragement a new walker needs to build fitness at a pace that’s right for them. In just a short time, a small amount of regular exercise can significantly improve a person’s health, well-being and confidence and from what our walkers tell us, there’s plenty of laughter to be heard on our walks.
