Peer Support Walks across Yorkshire

Join us for a guided walk at a nature park or beautiful open space near you. Our walks give you a chance to chat to people in similar circumstances, who understand the unique challenges of a brain tumour diagnosis.
About our walks

Open to all adults affected by a brain tumour (including patients, carers and loved ones), our walks are a great chance to:
  • feel the health benefits of walking and talking outdoors
  • combat depression, anxiety and stress and think more clearly
  • meet with family and peers in a relaxing environment
  • chat to people in similar circumstances, who understand what you might be going through
  • have regular wellbeing time and space just for you
We will take you for a leisurely, low-level walk for around 1.5 hours, and hope you will join us afterwards for a relaxing drink at the venue's café.

There is no pressure to chat, sometimes just walking with peers in the fresh-air can provide a boost to wellbeing.

The routes are suitable for beginner walkers, but unfortunately unsuitable for those in a wheelchair. Anyone who would prefer not to take part in the walk is welcome to enjoy a chat and a cuppa at the café with a member of our team.

Please email or call 0113 340 0111 to enquire about our walks.

Heather, one of our regular walkers, said: "I have met some lovely people who have become friends. Everyone has their own story to tell but we all have a brain tumour in common and can share our experiences in a positive way. Being out in the open, away from a clinical environment, gives the day a sense of normality. Walkers can do as much or as little as they like without any pressure, but plenty of encouragement."
