Our friendly support worker leads group walks offering a listening ear and providing support to help carers in your caring role.
Want to improve your health and wellbeing? Want to enjoy a walk with other carers? Want to get useful information and advice about the support available to you?
Walk and Talk is for you.
Good for carers and those you care for
Why not join us for a socially distant but easy walk around a local green area? You will get a chance to enjoy being outdoors in the company of other carers.
One of our friendly support workers will lead the walk, offer a listening ear and provide information to support you in your caring role.
Designed with carers in mind
The groups will meet over six weeks and they will take place in a local green space. There will be a mixture of groups:
- for carers on your own
- for you and those you care for
- age-specific, for example, if you are a young adult carer
All carers are welcome, our aim is to make the walks as inclusive as possible. Whatever your background, whatever your walking ability, come and join us and your fellow carers on a Walk and Talk.
It is free to take part, all we need is your company.

“I was feeling so sad and lonely since losing D. I was so happy to be offered a place on the walk and really enjoyed exploring local areas of nature. I now volunteer on other Walk and Talk groups at Carers Support Centre … and I have met other carers and we go out for walks independently. I don’t feel lonely anymore and really enjoy being able to give something back to a service which has helped me.”
“I feel so isolated as a carer, so it is fantastic to be out chatting with other people who understand what it’s like.”
