Walk Well Derby

About Us

Walk Well runs short, free health walks in Derby that are suitable for people of all ages, including children (under 18s must be accompanied by an adult).  The walks take in local parks, countryside and residential areas of Derby City.

You don’t need to book for these and can simply turn up, although please arrive before the walk start time so we don’t go without you!  You are advised to dress suitably for the weather conditions, wear comfortable, supportive footwear and bring a drink.

The Walk Well Scheme links closely with the Livewell Service, which helps people in Derby to lead a healthy lifestyle.  For more information on Livewell, please go to www.livewellderby.co.uk
