The walks will be led by volunteer Walk Leaders who are trained to keep the group safe and will be supported by volunteer Sighted Guides who can assist anyone requiring a guide to take part.

We are pleased that due to our Walking group volunteer team, we are able to continue this fab group!

The group will take a break over the winter with the aim to restart again in nicer weather in March.

This group is being run as part of our partnership with SKIES rehab team to provide support to as many people with sight loss in Kirklees as possible by offering information and advice and a range of activities to join in virtually and in person.
