Move Mates is a walking buddy project. We pair people who struggle to get out on their own, with one of our wonderful volunteers, for a regular walk.
Move Mates is for adults of all ages and can help people with short-term goals such as building confidence to get to new places, or with longer-term support to improve physical, mental, and emotional health outcomes.
We need volunteers to help us raise funds to support our important work. You can complete challenges, arrange coffee mornings - anything you'd like to do to fundraise for this charity.
You need compassion, good communication and be empathetic to people from all walks of life.
Good communication and organisational skills.
