Where it is working

There are successful community projects all over the UK - there are just a few of these listed below! We believe passionately in the benefits of being active and can help projects to use Nordic Walking in order to make a real difference! Our community package is a one stop shop for a sustainable, successful and inspirational programme.

We held a taster session yesterday and to our surprise 45 people attended – we had done mini flyers, placed it in a local newsletter so we were surprised but pleased.
After the session 28 people wished to attend the ‘Learn to Nordic’ course so that is something to keep us busy after Christmas. The walks are doing well across the 4 walks we have 60 people attending regularly. All 4 walks will be weekly after Christmas. We’ll be training 12 walk leaders in February!
Active Sefton
Over 1,000 people have participated in the project which has involved a mix of NWUK independent Instructors and our own team across the county. We are now cascade training our own Nordic walk leaders in order to keep up with the waiting lists!
Next step is to trial the NWUK weight loss plan with 3 GP surgeries, so watch this space.
