Information about free health walks, and West Norfolk Alliance
Free health walks
If you find it difficult to get active, why not start walking? It's really easy to get started; you don't need any special equipment, and importantly it counts towards your recommended amount of physical activity. Walking can improve your health, your happiness and will give you the chance to explore the outdoors, get to know your local area and meet new people.
Sometimes a walk alone in the fresh air is just what we need. But if you're just getting started and like the idea of having other people around to help you stay motivated - then walk with us.
A health walk is a short, locally held walk where you're encouraged to walk at your own pace, but if possible, slightly faster than normal. The aim is to encourage and support people who are trying to increase their activity levels, and lead a healthier lifestyle
All of the walks are free and you don't have to book a place. Our walk leaders are friendly and support walkers whatever their needs. All new participants are asked to complete a walker registration form before the start of the walk, arriving 15 minutes before the walk start time.

West Norfolk Alliance
The West Norfolk Alliance is a partnership of organisations involved in providing health and care services in West Norfolk.
- NHS West Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group (WNCCG)
- Norfolk Community Health and Care Trust NHS Trust (NCH & C)
- The Queen Elizabeth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
- Norfolk County Council (Community Services)
- Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk
- West Norfolk Voluntary and Community Action (WNVCA)
- Norfolk & Suffolk NHA Foundation Trust (NSFT)
Currently, each member of the Alliance has a role in health and care delivery. You have told us that this can sometimes make it difficult to get the care you need, and mean that you have to repeat your story to a number of professionals. This can be frustrating and lead to duplication, which delays your care and wastes valuable resources. This is why the West Norfolk Alliance has been created.
