Creating healthy communities by enabling people to improve their wellbeing through exercise.
We are a small charity on a big mission to improve people’s wellbeing through exercise.
We break down the barriers to exercise, using our projects to tackle health inequalities.
The Move Map
The Move Mate meets their buddy at their front door and accompanies them for a walk. It could be a walk to the local shop or to pick up a prescription, or it could be a walk to an activity or event they want to attend. It could be as simple as walk around the block just to get moving, build confidence and have a chat.
Help us to improve
Chris joined Move the Masses as a volunteer in 2020 when he was furloughed from his job. He initially volunteered to deliver prescriptions as part of our Covid-19 response and then went on to become a Move Mate for a local woman that lived not far from him.
Being furloughed saw him have much more spare time than he was used to, so when he saw a request for Walk Leader training for the then new Acomb Ambles walking project, he jumped at the chance.
Chris has always worked with young people in the community and loves being involved in community projects and meeting people. So now, following his training, he leads a leisurely walk through Acomb on a monthly basis.
