WalkMates

SPDL-12

The WalkMates program aims to support older people or a person with a disability gain exercise with the support of a volunteer, who can provide basic assistance and sense of security while providing company while walking in the community.

WalkMates is suitable for those who have been encouraged to take exercise as part of maintaining everyday health, rehabilitation after surgery, stroke or heart problems and also for those who may have lost confidence in walking on their own either following a fall or because of reduced mobility or isolation.

The volunteer and Walkmate member are matched and the volunteer is provided with a clear idea about the needs of the person they are assisting.
