Try Walking for Wellbeing in 2022!

Community Integrated Care is proud to share our refreshed Walking for Wellbeing Toolkit , launching just in time to help you kickstart your New Year’s Resolutions for 2022!

Created in collaboration with the Rugby League World Cup, the toolkit provides guidance to support people to create special Walking for Wellbeing Groups and shares top tips to adopt healthier lifestyle choices.

From mindfulness techniques to meal planning, the toolkit also provides a month-by-month guide to help people build upon skills that can lead to better physical and mental wellbeing.

The toolkit has been specifically designed to engage people who access social care and support services, however people of all ages and backgrounds can benefit from this guide – including schools, community groups, amateur rugby league teams, or simply groups of friends who want to get active together.

Inside the guide, you’ll find:

  • Ways to register your walking group and plan goals
  • Top tips and progress trackers
  • Monthly challenges, with fun facts and activities to complete whilst out on your walks.

John Hughes, Director of Partnerships and Communities at Community Integrated Care, said:

“We’re excited to share our Walking for Wellbeing Toolkit for 2022 and look forward to seeing the people we support and our wider communities getting involved in the exciting challenges that we’ve created for people throughout the year.

We hope that this will be a valuable resource, not only for people in our charity, but for anyone who would like to improve their mental and physical wellbeing as one of their New Year’s Resolution too. We’d like to say a huge thank you to our partners at the Rugby League World Cup 2021 and Sport England, for making these opportunities possible – and as a result, helping us ensure that the people we support have access to incredible experiences and live the best lives possible.”

Oliver Thomason, Sports Inclusion Assistant at Community Integrated Care shared his thoughts on the guide:

“Our new Walking for Wellbeing toolkit is a fantastic way to get started on your New Year’s Resolutions’ and try something new – there’s something for everyone to get involved with. I found the guide really helpful as there are some great ideas on how to live a healthier lifestyle – from getting enough sleep to being outside more and looking after your mental wellbeing.

It’s also really good fun to take part in the activities each month and I am already excited about setting myself some new goals in January. I can’t wait for others to give it a go too and to see how different walking groups try out the monthly challenges.”

The resource has been created as part of Community Integrated Care’s ground-breaking partnership with the Rugby League World Cup 2021, which aims to change lives, promote inclusion and create greater opportunities in communities for people with care and support needs.
