Barking and Dagenham Walks Programme

About Us

Our health walks have been set up and are delivered in partnership by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham's Community Sports and Physical Activity team, Rangers service and North East London Foundation Trust,  Improving Access to Psychological Therapies  (IAPT) service alongside 'Walking for Health' to provide opportunities for the community to improve their health and fitness, as well as make friends.

All walks are at the walker's own pace, with trained leaders. The walks are a great way of making new friends and keeping fit and healthy as well as improving mental health and wellbeing. They also offer a chance to spend time in the natural environment.

At the moment, six regular walks are in place.
