Case Study

Wellbeing Walks Group

Our Community Activity Leaders have been working closely with the local Wellbeing Walks Group in the Salisbury area. This local group was successful in their application to receive a City Council grant for the 2021-2022 financial year which allowed them to cover their membership to the Ramblers national walking charity and ensure that all walk leaders were insured, and provided them with the online backing to advertise the walks they do. However, the group were looking for a sustainable future and to develop volunteers into leadership roles to support their founder and Coordinator, Pam Rouquette.

In late 2021 one of the SCC Activity Leaders completed their Ramblers Walk Leader Trainer Qualification and began support the Salisbury Wellbeing Walks Group in training new volunteer walk leaders and enable them to grow their current offer and meet more people. Pam has since been working alongside the Communities Team to expand the offer and help SCC in its goal to give more people access to a free or affordable active lifestyle. From 2023 Wellbeing Walks Salisbury will become a formal partner of the SCC Communities Team.

“It has been invaluable having a member of the City Council’s Community team working with us. Having our own leader trainer in Salisbury is vital for our group’s future, it has enabled us to access training locally, to up-date our existing leaders and train new volunteer leaders. We have also benefited from IT advice and can get help with any problems encountered.” (Pam Rouquette – Group Coordinator)
