Communities in Wales
We work closely with communities to increase wellbeing through walking and to improve streets, so they are more welcoming and vibrant.
Many older people in Wales are physically inactive, or at risk of becoming so, which increases social isolation, reduces independence and impacts on health.

Our work in action
Walking Friends Wales / Cyfeillion Cerdded Cymru
We worked with Healthy Active Fund (HAF) on Walking Friends Wales (Cyfeillion Cerdded Cymru), our project to help people aged 50+ in south Wales walk more.
We helped older people start walking in their communities, make new connections and voice the need for changes to their local walking environment.

Yr awyr agored / The open outdoors
We partnered with Oriel Mon to develop guided walks with artistic interest.
Supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Yn Awyr Agored project celebrated the work of the Welsh landscape painter, Sir John Kyffin Williams OBE RA and the Anglesey landscapes that inspired him.
We collaborated to create three led walks on Anglesey – at Bae Trearddur, Llangefni and Pwllfanogl. The walks support mental and physical wellbeing and connect local people to the work of Kyffin Williams at scenic locations on Anglesey.
