Volunteering and coaching

Walk leaders

Volunteer Walk Leaders play a vital role in delivering many different walks across Milton Keynes.  This includes Milton Keynes Health Walks, the Women's Walking Network and the yearly walking festival.  All organised by The Parks Trust.

Full training can be provided and you will be supported throughout the process by our existing volunteer team.  Leading walks is beneficial to individuals and to the participants of each walk.  It can be a great way to improve mental and physical health for all.
