Let's Walk Cymru
‘Let’s Walk Cymru’ is a new Wales-wide initiative tasked with increasing the number of people participating in walking as a regular activity. Walking is a key activity that can potentially reach even the most inactive people in Wales.
- Brisk walking is known to be one of the best forms of activity – it’s free, accessible and available to all;
- Wales’ natural environment provides us with ample opportunities to get to know your community, your area, your country.
The focus of the ‘Let’s Walk Cymru’ programme is on targeting the inactive population and those who will benefit the most. The programme seeks to explore new and innovative ways of promoting walking to improve health and wellbeing. ‘Let’s Walk Cymru’ aims to extend the traditional health walks programmes and provide opportunities from doorsteps to mountains. It also encourages projects to use a targeted approach of working with specific groups.
There is an opportunity to apply for grant funding to extend existing walking projects and to develop new ones. For further information, visit http://www.lets-walk-cymru.org.uk
