Paths for All is a Scottish charity which champions walking in Scotland, for everyone, everyday and everywhere.   We support community walking for health projects across Scotland which organise free group health walks every week. Health walks are short (up to 1 hour), safe, social, fun, accessible, low level walks led by trained volunteers. Health walks are targeted at inactive people who would benefit most from doing more physical activity, although anyone can come along to a Health Walk and new walkers are always welcome.

Paths for All runs a one day Walk Leader course which is free of charge for volunteers who wish to lead health walks.  Walk Leader courses coming up in Aberdeen, Portlethen and Elgin are listed on our Training Calendar at: http://www.pathsforall.org.uk/component/option,com_jevents/Itemid,268/task,year.listevents/view,year/

You can search for health walk groups in your Local Authority area on our website at: www.pathsforall.org.uk/healthwalkfinder  If you are interested in volunteering, or would like more information on a local project, please contact the relevant Project Coordinator using the contact details given on the website.

If there is no group in your area and you would like to help to start one, please contact Helen Wilson, Development Officer at Paths for All: [email protected] / 01463 725159.
