Paths to Wellbeing

Paths to Wellbeing Thumbnail

Throughout 2022 and 2023, Paths to Wellbeing is giving 18 communities across Wales the tools and training to improve nature and access to walking in their local areas!

Ramblers Cymru’s flagship £1.2m funded project, working with 18 communities across Wales, is a key driver for our vision to put walking at the heart of communities by improving access to green spaces. We are giving the selected communities the tools and free training needed to identify and design new routes and enhance and upgrade existing ones, all with the support of their local regional project officer. 
 
We will also be working alongside the 22 local authorities, Wildlife Trust Wales and Coed Cadw, the Woodland Trust in Wales, to enhance the local environment for nature to thrive. With activities such as tree planting, wildflower sowing and wildlife activity days, there are plenty of activities for all ages and backgrounds to get involved with! 

Led by the community, for the community

Ramblers Cymru believes that by investing in upskilling, equipping, supporting and leading local volunteers to manage and undertake practical path and habitat maintenance and improvements, community engagement with paths and green spaces will be strengthened. Ultimately this will connect people to the health and wellbeing benefits of nature and outdoor physical activity.

We are working with local volunteers and community members to deliver what they've set out they need in their community. You can be a core part of this flagship project, gaining a vast range of new skills with expert support and guidance from Ramblers Cymru and partners!
