Finding Your Feet®

The value of exercising and communicating with others has been proven

At C360 we understand and value the importance of walking to support good physical and mental wellbeing. The value of being out in nature, exercising and communicating with others has been proven.

Green Prescribing is considered high profile to us, and we are passionate and committed to deliver this within our communities.  Finding Your Feet® and Walking for Wellness walks were developed to do just this and have succeeded, by offering supported walks that aim to meet the needs of those who may have previously felt less motivated or confident to attend.  We are facilitating walks in both Colchester and Braintree district so please call us on 01206 505250 for further information.

Call 01206 505250 or email msp@community360.org.uk

We are always looking to expand our locations, so if you would like to get involved and help with walks in a particular area within the Braintree District, please get in touch.

Meet Jo

I’m Jo and I have a passion for helping people find movement!

Through my work with the Finding your Feet® walks in and around Braintree, as well as my online active motivation walks, I enjoy motivating and supporting people to get active, to reconnect with others and with nature. For those whose mobility, health or confidence prevents them from getting outside to walk, the online activity is a stepping-stone. I love my job, because not only am I helping support others to get moving, I’m benefitting from it too!

Through my ambassador role with Find Your Active, I want to support, enable and motivate individuals and communities to find the exercise that best suits their needs and through this, help them grow in confidence and feel healthier in mind and body.

I hope you will enjoy my monthly blogs and hopefully see you on one of my walks soon.
