Health Walk Grants provide funding for projects to improve wellbeing and reduce ill-health in Scotland through walking programmes. The fund is open to members of the Scottish Health Walk Network and aims to:

  • increase the number of new walkers taking part in Health Walks in Scotland
  • increase the amount of physical activity undertaken by people in Scotland, especially those experiencing health inequality
  • improve wellbeing or reduce ill-health.

Projects can apply for the cost of initiatives that encourage people at any stage of life to walk more. The project might focus on a particular target group or range of groups, or on a specific geographical area.

They welcome new and innovative approaches as well as tested models of delivery but the project must include the delivery of at least one weekly Health Walk in the proposal.
