Ramblers Wellbeing Walks is England’s largest network of health walk. Active Devon has been supporting Ramblers Wellbeing Walks over the years by coordinating Wellbeing Walks across Devon and by providing free walk leader training.

Walk leader training is for anyone who would like to lead or help to lead an existing or new Ramblers Wellbeing Walk in their community.

There are many benefits to volunteering. If you’re keen to walk more and would enjoy helping others, spending more time outdoors and meeting new people, then we’d love to hear from you.


What Does the Walk Leader Training Entail?

The training is straightforward, informal and takes less than a day. We also continue to support volunteers once they are qualified, with access to guidance and resources afterwards. Plus, qualified walk leaders are insured to lead Ramblers Wellbeing Walks with public liability and personal injury insurance provided by the Ramblers.

The training includes:

  • Completing some simple online eLearning.
  • Shadowing a local wellbeing walk.
  • Attending a walk leadership workshop of approximately three hours (online or face to face).


Who Delivers the Training

We deliver walk leader training predominantly for volunteers in North Devon, Torridge, South Hams and West Devon. If you’re in a different area of Devon and keen to do the training, please still complete the Expression of Interest Form (see details below). We will then look to see how we can support you, such as connecting you with partners who deliver the training in other areas.


Next Steps Towards Becoming a Walk Leader

If you’re interested in becoming a Ramblers Wellbeing Walks leader, you’ll just need to complete a short Expression of Interest Form. We will then be in touch to get you started.

Our workshops are scheduled based on demand so we will let you know of workshop dates, and you can choose when to attend.

To find out more and to access the Expression of Interest Form, please go to our Walk Leader Training in Devon page.
