Are you a friendly person who enjoys walking, being outdoors and meeting people? If so, this role could be perfect for you!

We are looking for volunteers to become walk leaders to help support members of the Rushmoor community who want to increase their physical activity level and improve their overall well-being. As a volunteer walk leader, you will lead a group of residents on pre-planned safe routes of varying distance within the Farnborough area. There will be two walk leaders on each walk. 

Commitment / Days

We will work with your availability to schedule walks. It is likely that the walks will be shorter in distance at the beginning of the project (around 45 minutes), building up to longer walks as residents become fitter and more confident in their ability.

We ask that volunteers arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled time.

Support

We are committed to ensuring the welfare of our volunteers is at the forefront. We are available to offer general guidance on your volunteering experience and to support you throughout your volunteering. We will provide you with:

  • Volunteer handbook
  • Training
  • Regular follow up and support
  • Regular updates and news from RVS
  • Travel expenses 


What skills do I need?

We are looking for people who are keen regular walkers and physically fit. In addition, you should be: 

  • Reliable, punctual and well organised
  • Able to commit to a regular slot (time to be agreed)
  • Friendly and welcoming with good communication skills
  • Confident to give a brief talk before starting, including information on the walking route and potential hazards.
  • Willing to work to the risk assessment provided & lead a walk safely and able to identify any unexpected hazards
  • Work in collaboration with other Volunteer Health Walk Leaders
  • Willing to follow policies and procedures
  • Able to identify and report on any safeguarding concerns, should they occur
  • Understand the need for confidentially and sensitivity

Full training will be given including a full induction with a trial walk.
