Peer Support Walks across Yorkshire

Join us for a guided stroll, in partnership with Walking With My Bear, alongside peers who understand the unique challenges of a brain tumour diagnosis.

Open to patients and caregivers, our peer support 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

There’s 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, and please get in touch to enquire about wheelchair accessibility. Anyone who’d prefer not to take part is welcome for a cuppa and chat with us at the cafĂ©, where the walkers are also welcome to join us afterwards for a well-earned brew.

"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."  (Heather, regular walker)
