The Walking for Health programme was established in 2001 and continues to be an integral part of Government policy to address the health and wellbeing of the population in Northern Ireland. The programme is delivered through HSC Trusts across Northern Ireland and is supported by the Public Health Agency. Walking for Health aims to encourage inactive people to increase their level of physical activity by participating in local led health walks.

Walk Leaders are key to the success of Walking for Health in Northern Ireland and they have a unique and valuable contribution to make to health improvement, complementing the work of Health and Social Care staff. There are currently around 1,500 active Walk Leaders supporting 250 Walking for Health groups throughout Northern Ireland.
