This area provides an overview of some key information for coordinators in our network of walking for health projects around Scotland.
Paths for All are here to help support you to deliver an effective project. We support projects which we directly fund as well as many which we don't currently fund. If you haven’t had any contact with Paths for All please contact your regional Development Officer and let us know what you’re delivering so that we can add you to our network and offer tailored support.
Our Development Officers offer support to health walk projects all over Scotland. They have experience in project design, volunteer recruitment, partnership development and trouble shooting.
In addition to the personal support of a Development Officer, we can also offer:
- To publish your details on the Find a Health Walk section of this website - a good place to post your details so that new walkers can find out what is happening locally.
- A tailored programme of training to help your project make the most of local opportunities.
- Advice on supporting volunteers including details on policies, case studies, support ideas, awards and investing in volunteers.
- An online database to help you record walker details and measure changes in physical activity.
- A regular E News to keep you up to date with news from the network.
- Local networking opportunities so that you can meet other Project Coordinators in your region.
- Grants to help resource your work (please note that as of June 2013, our funding for Community and Workplace Walking projects is currently closed to new applications).
- Advice on showing the difference you are making.
- We can offer free facilitators to help think about your project and its impact.
- Advice on and provision of Volunteer walk leader insurance.
