The P4W Walk service has been thoroughly reviewed over the last couple of years and now wants a new full-time Health Walks manager to take this important service to the next level.

P4W Walk works to create and sustain healthy communities by supporting the delivery of local, volunteer led Health Walks via 17 current walking groups located in the eastern part of the Highlands. The groups walk locally each week supported by volunteers who give up their time to lead and enthuse the walkers.

A key focus of health walking is supporting people who are living a sedentary life into more active lifestyles. P4W also actively supports people with dementia and their carers and has secured funding to further encourage weekly walkers to become active travellers too by replacing regular car journeys with walking and cycling.

P4W wants to recruit an enthusiastic and motivated Health Walk manager to lead this work which sits within the Partnerships for Wellbeing (P4W) charity based in Inverness. Working with office-based colleagues and a large team of volunteer Health Walk leaders, you will share your enthusiasm for active, happy, healthy lifestyles with new walkers and volunteers alike. You will engage with partners and stakeholders to support the ongoing development of Health Walks and build on the work of this well-established but evolving project.
