DRC Wellbeing Walks

About Us

About us

We provide a weekly 'Wellbeing walk' in the heart of Saltley, an inner city suburb of Birmingham. This is a perfect opportunity to take a walk out in the fresh air and meet new people. You will also feel safe and reassured as all walks are accompanied by a trained walked leader to ensure you have an enjoyable and pleasant experience.

We also run a coffee morning afterwards at the Washwood Heath Health and Wellbeing centre , ground floor where we offer FREE tea and coffee, fruits and biscuits. This is delivered by our coordinators and volunteers as part of the Wellbeing Coordinator Programme funded by Birmingham Bettercare. Here, clients can access information on all aspects of their health and wellbeing such as support for carers, accessing health and social care services, financial advice, local activities, social clubs, and much more.
