West Wales Walking for Wellbeing

West Wales Walking for Wellbeing

This project encourage people of all ages and abilities to take advantage of the physical, social and mental health benefits offered by walking in groups of like-minded people. It does this by setting up walking groups around the County.

West Wales Walking for Wellbeing is funded by the Healthy & Active Fund and provides accessible walking opportunities for those living in communities across West Wales. The project aim is to

  • Work with GP practices and other centres in local communities to set-up sustainable ‘’walks for well-being’, most of which will be delivered by volunteers.
  • Highlight the benefits to both walkers and the health sector of supporting community-based walking schemes
  • Demonstrate a sustainable model for social prescribing and walking activity.
  • Walking groups will welcome referrals from health professionals for those most likely to benefit from taking part in health walks.
  • Demonstrate the value of community-based walking opportunities
