 Whilst we attempt to cater for  people with different walking abilities by means of Tea Shop Walks, Short Walks and Long Walks,we have a sister organisation, Walking for Heath, that is operated by Ramblers with the help of government funding. This scheme recognises that many mental and physical health conditions benefit greatly from the gentle excercise and social interaction that comes from walking.

Some of their walks are shorter than the ones we organise. Some  involve a gentle stroll followed by tea and cake. Others go farther afield using public transport where bus passes come in handy. They are therefore recommended as a way of getting into walking and building up your strength ready for progression to longer walks with Ramblers if you so wish.

Locally, this scheme is operated by Teignbridge Walk This Way with separate programmes run in Teignmouth  and Dawlish and other local towns. 

Full details can be seen on Teignbridge District Council's Website. Click on the blue letters which act as a link to their websites.
