Age UK South Staffordshire Positive Steps
Welcome to the Positive Steps Project.
If you are new or returning to exercise, walking not only offers the opportunity to improve fitness at a pace that suits you, but also provides the opportunity to meet new people and socialise.
We offer a programme of group walks, encouraging people of all ages to live a healthy, active lifestyle.
Our walks are led by volunteer walk leaders who are trained in leading Health Walks. Our friendly walk leaders look forward to welcoming you to our groups.

We deliver weekly, fortnightly and monthly walks across Southern Staffordshire. We currently deliver approx 50 walks a month.
Level A Walks: Shorter Walk. Between 20-60 minutes in length. Suitable for inexperienced walkers, slow pace on even ground.
Level B Walks: Moderate/ Hard Walk. Up to 90 minutes in length. Sometimes sizable ascents and descents. Suitable for regular walkers.
Level C Walks : Progression Walk, demanding longer walk for experienced walkers seeking a greater challenge. Fast pace, off road. Up to 2 hours in length and terrain to include slopes, steps, stiles and uneven surfaces. (Progression walks are not part of the Walking for Health programme)
We are currently looking for more volunteers to support the project and lead walks.
