Walking Group Volunteer

We are looking for a volunteer to run our weekly walking group which is hosted at Heaton Park every Tuesday 2 – 4pm

At the beginning of the first lockdown in March 2020 the majority of our clients were isolated with very little or no support available, so we decided to facilitate a weekly walking group which has become a popular event for our clients.

The aim of the walking group is to support disabled people within the Greater Manchester area to be active and participate in their local communities whilst meeting other clients of Breakthrough UK.

As the Walking Group leader, you will be expected to complete a Travel Training session before the group begins (if required) followed by a light walk with clients around the grounds of the park.

The purpose of this project is to keep clients active.

For the majority of our clients the weekly walking group is a detrimental part of their social calendars.

This ever-growing popular group demonstrates just how important it is it to continue on a weekly basis.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please complete the following form and we will be in contact
