Walking Programme

Why walking is good for you:

  • Improving balance, co-ordination and joint flexibility.
  • Reducing the risk of falls.
  • Preventing the development of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis by strengthening bones and joints – hip fractures in over 45s could be reduced by up to 50% with regular walking.
  • Improving muscle strength, increasing confidence, stamina and energy levels.
  • Reducing the risk of developing Alzheimer’s, dementia and confusion.
  • Improving social life. Walking is a great way of getting out and about and if you do it with friends or join a walking group, it can be a great way to socialise.

We have been delivering walking programmes in Cavan when requested by communities.

A tutor leads 6 weeks of walking and encourages the group to continue to manage walking in their community.
