When & Where

Paths for All wants to recognise, reward and celebrate the outstanding contribution of volunteers involved in our Active Travel, Active Environments and Walking for Health projects.

We will be holding our Annual Volunteer event "Celebrating Scotland's Walking Champions" at the Scottish Parliament on Tuesday 10th September 2019 to showcase the dedication and achievements of volunteers. To be part of the event nominate your exceptional volunteers in our 2019 Volunteer Awards.

Winning projects will receive £250, along with an award and certificate. All nominees will be invited to our event, on a first come, first served basis, and receive a certificate of recognition.
