Reach Out Walking Group

by Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) Scotland

Outdoor Pursuits, Employability, Conditions

The aim of the Reach Out Walking Group is to get those involved out and about. This reduces social isolation, builds confidence and self esteem and give a better understanding of environmental issues.

The walking group goes to many different locations throughout the north east of Scotland. We try to take in different environments throughout the 10 weeks, from costal walks, hill walks, river walks and woodland walks. During the day we will not only walk but will stop to look at local plant life an animal life and incorporate some basic bush craft skills.

This project is aimed at those who are either going through the criminal justice system, have substance misuse issues, have mental health problems, a learning difficulty or are long term unemployed.
