Inverclyde Globetrotters Walking Network is a partnership between Your Voice, Inverclyde HSCP, NHS GGC, Paths for All and Inverclyde Globetrotters.

Going further for fun, fitness and friendship!

The Inverclyde Walking Network project arose from Inverclyde HSCPs Active Living Strategy, and has been developed in partnership with local agencies and organisations to reduce levels of obesity and ill-health, whilst promoting the positive benefits of leading a physically active lifestyle.

Through this project we promote the benefits of physical activity by getting local people more active and encouraging them to take part in local Health Walks.

This project compliments the Active Living Strategy and strengthens the aim to get local people more active more often.

Walking groups are an effective intervention in tackling health inequalities. We continue to highlight and promote that walking is for all ages, abilities, genders, has no cost and is ‘both a prevention and a treatment’.

Groups leave from around Inverclyde on most days of the week, with walk leaders co-ordinating routes, and usually a cup of tea and chat at the end!

 

“The walking groups get me out the house and helps with my anxiety. Next goal is to give up smoking!” - Walker A.
