When & Where

Please see the individual walks below for times and locations

Walk-ER provides walks within Neilston, Barrhead, Eastwood Park, Cowan Park, Clarkston, Newton Mearns and Giffnock.

East Renfrewshire Health & Social Care Partnership (HSCP) is responsible for all Health and Social Care Services within the East Renfrewshire local authority boundary. The HSCP Health Improvement Team's key aims are to improve health and reduce health inequalities. We deliver a range of services and training as well as contribute to local planning.

Physical activity is a key priority and we have developed our walking programme, Walk-ER, through engagement with local groups and individuals.

Our Project has a very committed team of volunteers who offer local walks within their neighbourhood or park. We offer a range of low-level to moderate/fast paced walks depending on the needs of the individual walker.

Our walks are free and last from 20 minutes up to an hour. A hot drink and a chat afterwards is always encouraged.

We offer Strength and Balance Classes and Chair based Exercises in a range of settings across the Council area for people looking to build up their confidence to walk or to remain independent. We also provide support for people to gain access to Live Active and Vitality Programmes offered to all adults.
