Walking for Health Fund

Funding to help get Scotland walking

Health Walk in Banff, Aberdeenshire

We provide funding to projects working to increase the number of people walking in Scotland.

In 2018, we awarded 27 grants worth a total of £160,000 to projects across the country through the Walking for Health Fund. Find out more about the projects that were funded here.

Our Walking for Health Fund 2019-20 has now closed, but you can contact the Walking for Health Development Officer for your area for free support and advice anytime.

The fund aims to:

  • Increase the number of new walkers taking part in Health Walks in Scotland.
  • Increase the amount of physical activity undertaken by people in Scotland, especially those experiencing health inequality.
  • Improve wellbeing or reduce ill-health.

Constituted groups, registered charities, community interest companies, public sector or statutory bodies, health and social care partnerships, health boards, schools, universities, colleges, and private sector organisations working in Scotland can apply for grants of up to £10,000 to help work towards these outcomes in their own communities.
