Healthwalks re-started across the city

We are delighted that, following changes to government guidelines, Healthwalks can now resume across the city. We've worked closely with our governing body, Ramblers Wellbeing Walks, Brighton & Hove City Council and our Walk Leaders to make sure the walks follow Covid safety guidelines.

If you are new to Healthwalks and would like to join, please download and complete the registration form at the bottom of the Active for Life Registration page and email it to healthwalks@brighton-hove.gov.uk.

We will then send you a copy of the current walk programme, and guidance on how to take part safely. If you need help filling out the form, or want to do it offline, you can phone 01273 294 589.

You can also get involved in the Healthwalks World Walking Challenge, which is done in your own time and puts your steps/miles walked towards a virtual trek to Everest!

About Healthwalks

Healthwalks are a great way for people of all ages and abilities to be active and improve their health. 

They vary from under one mile on the flat, to more challenging walks of up to 5 miles in local parks and green spaces. 

Dogs are welcome but they must be well behaved and on a lead. 

Volunteering as a Healthwalk Leader

We are hoping to re-start training new Volunteer Healthwalk Leaders very soon.

If you're interested in volunteering with us, send an email to healthwalks@brighton-hove.gov.uk

Our Volunteer Co-ordinator will be happy to chat with you more about the role, and can add you to the waiting list for training.

Targeted Healthwalks

We also run 2 friendly walks for specific communities. To find out more about our regular seafront and Downland walks for LGBTQ+ people, and our weekly walks for adults with a learning disabilit, send an email to healthylifestyles@brighton-hove.gov.uk.
