Walk with Me linked volunteers (16+) to older people to provide support and encouragement to get out of the house.
Individual volunteers were linked to an individual older person and together they worked to achieve the older person’s goals and aspirations which included walking to friends, attending church or going to the local shop.
The main target of this project were older people limited to their own home environment, as a result of ill health or disability.
The project also had a BME focus and worked on a ward level in the Chapel Allerton ward (Chapeltown, Scott Hall, Meanwood and Chapel Allerton).
Walk with Me wrapped up in July 2017; the full report below gives a picture of its impact and what we learned.
