Summary

Walk Leaders needed for community social dog walking club

Detailed description

Walkie Dogs is a community based organisation which aims to better its members and the community, with the aid of our canine friends. We are launching summer 2024 with 74 walks across 74 cities, which will meet up every Sunday. The walks will all be based in local parks and other outdoor locations.

We are working closely with mental health charities across the UK to ensure all our members have the support for their mental health if needed. We aim to better the community people live in making it a safe, welcoming and friendly experience. 

Walkie Dogs is volunteer led and we are reaching across to many different volunteer organisations across the UK for any help they can offer in helping us increase our Walkie Dogs family, and help recruit the walk leaders these communities need. We are hoping 30% of our volunteers to be between the ages of 16-21, with the goal to help reduce knife and gang crime across the UK. 

We need:

  • Between 3-15 walk leaders for each city.
  • Available for 1 hour a week
  • Available for a minimum of 20 Sundays a year
  • A DBS check, or similar credentials depending on location. 

Each volunteer will receive:

  • Walk Leader Training
  • Signposting Training
  • Access to the Walkie Dogs Website, with all discounts available that are on the website catering for all dog needs
  • Ability to change locations anytime as often as they like and meet other walk leaders and walkers.
