Companion Walking Program
CHIRP Community Health’s Companion Walking Program promotes companionship and some gentle walking in the local community. Interested participants are allocated a volunteer, and a mutually suitable time is made to meet and walk regularly in a public area such as the Castlemaine Botanical Gardens.
As a CHIRP Companion Walking volunteer, you would be available to walk with an allocated Mount Alexander Shire community member. A friendly chat while walking is an essential component of this role as participants of this program may be socially isolated or experiencing life challenges.
If you are interested in becoming a Companion Walking volunteer, please call us on (03) 5479 1000.
