Get Ireland Walking is a national initiative which exists to maximise the number of people participating in walking; for health, wellbeing and fitness, throughout Ireland.
The Get Ireland Walking Active Community Walking Programme aims to support the creation of vibrant walking communites throughout Ireland. The programme will work with communities to increase the capacity and potential of people with low levels of physical activity to become more active through walking.
Cork Sports Partnership coordinate the programme locally in Cork and under the Active Community Walking programme provide walking facilitators to interested groups/communities over a period of 6-8 weeks to roll out the programme. These facilitators are provided free of charge under the GIW Active Community Walking Programme.
Cork Sports Partnership under the GIW ACWP is seeking groups/communities who would like to get a walking club/group going in their area under this programme. A trained facilitator will attend 6 sessions and provide advice/resources which will help the group become sustainable.
