'Walk with Me' training on Zoom

We are currently recruiting volunteers to join our 'Walk With Me' programme. This involves committing to a one-to-one weekly walk of 30-60 minutes with a refugee or asylum seeker in Bristol, and committing to the walks until September/ October where possible (subject to government guidelines). The role involves supporting and encouraging your walking partner with their spoken English, exploring new places with them where possible, and promoting the benefits of walking exercise in a friendly and accessible way. 

If you would like to become a walking partner, then please do attend the online training. Please email  to express your interest and receive the link for the training call, or to ask any questions.

The training session will be on Monday 25th January 2021, 7.30-9pm.
