Would you like to go out more but find it difficult to go out on your own? Our carefully chosen and trained volunteer walking companions are keen to support you. We will match you with a local companion with similar interests so that you can enjoy a walk together.

Walking is one of the best forms of exercise and has been shown to have many benefits:
- it improves joint mobility, muscle strength, circulation and bone density
- it can improve mental wellbeing, relieve stress and improving memory
- it can help you sleep better and boost energy

Walking with a Companion can give you confidence and open up opportunities to participate in future walks and community activities. If you are interested and would like more information please contact Lynn Crossland – call 04 499 6646 or email cws@acwellington.org.nz
