Peaks of Health

Do you need some advice or support to enable your organisation or community group to be able to access the health and wellbeing benefits of walking in the Peak District National Park?

We have been delivering supported health walks within the National Park for over 30 years and would like to share that knowledge and experience.  Through funding from the BMW Recharge in Nature Project, we will be delivering the Peaks of Health project, which will:

  • link with community-based organisations to provide a series of supported health walks and bike rides from spring 2024
  • provide a safe, supported opportunity to walk or cycle for a wide range of people with physical health, mental health or age-related needs.
  • provide follow-up resources, training and networking opportunities for staff and volunteers from community organisations for health or age-related needs.

If you are interested in this project and want more information, please get in touch.
