Through our walks coordinator we take overall responsibility for the development and delivery of a range of walking initiatives in Greenwich, including led walks and increasing independent walking and active travel, which includes the national Walking for Health programme, working to contribute to health improvement and to reduce health inequalities.
We ensure walking initiatives are relevant to and accessed by prioritised segments particularly those in the population with the poorest health outcomes.
Our Healthy Walks scheme is part of Walking for Health, which is Englands largest network of health walk schemes that supports people to lead healthier lifestyles.
