A SCOTTISH walking charity is looking for volunteers to lead a new health walk initiative.

Paths for All is looking for dedicated Clacks locals to become volunteer walk leaders to encourage more people in the area to take up walking.

The Stirling-based charity has launched a recruitment campaign to drive up volunteer numbers amid a post-Covid decline.

These volunteers will help support a network of 800 short, social and accessible low-level walks across the country.

Kevin Lafferty, chief executive officer for Paths for All, said: “Walk leaders are the most integral part of a health walk and the time and care they give to the local communities they serve is extremely valuable.

“Health walk volunteers help to support the health and wellbeing of local people by providing a safe, fun and friendly space for people to be active, socialise and enjoy the outdoors.

“But volunteers experience many benefits too – exercise, getting outside and having a good blether, all while helping others.

“Training is provided so volunteers feel confident and ready to lead the walks, for all ages and abilities, in their communities.”
