Are you a friendly and welcoming person who would like to support local families? Do you enjoy walking and being outside? Then this rewarding role could be for you!

This role involves supporting the Ready Steady Walk Rushmoor group in Farnborough on a Thursday. These are free, fun and informal social walking groups for new parents to give them the chance to meet other local families as well as the motivation to get out in the fresh air and get fit. Everyone is welcome! The walks are pushchair friendly and last for 40-50 minutes. We are looking for volunteers to chat to parents in the group and make everyone feel welcome. In addition, useful information is shared with the group including the latest health information. The walks are organised by Hampshire Healthy Families which is a partnership between Southern Health Foundation Trust (NHS) and Barnardo’s.

The same role is available in Aldershot on a Tuesday morning. For more information, please see - https://www.volunteernorthhants.org/opportunities/ready-steady-mums-rushmoor-thursday-social-walking-group-aldershot-7271952/
