Walk and Talk – Volunteer Wanted

Walk and talk is a service under the let’s connect project supporting individuals over the age of 18 who are isolated in the community. We support people across Wigan and Leigh to feel less secluded by helping them access support, social groups as well as meeting with them in the community. The project consists of meeting someone for a walk and a chat in a local park or green area, once a week for six weeks. This is a really rewarding project for someone interested in meeting and supporting others in their community.  

 To lead a walk the volunteer must be able to travel independently across the borough preferably with their own vehicle. We are looking for someone who has experience working with/supporting others, comfortable meeting new people and accessing new locations. We have guidance available about how the volunteer can open up conversations and support the individual whilst out in the community. The volunteer will also have regular updates with our team to discuss relevant groups and resources to pass on to the person receiving the walk and talk.
