What will I be doing?

  • We are seeking volunteers to help out with various monthly walks throughout the Richmond Borough as part of a programme to get more people into parks and open spaces.
  • A great opportunity to spend time enjoying nature with others!
  • You should be prepared to push wheelchairs or help those with limited mobility, if needed.

What impact will this have?

  • Becoming a volunteer with Ruils will help give back to the community to provide those with limited mobility the chance to get out and explore the Borough's parks and walk ways.
  • You will also be able to socialise and be a friendly face to those who may be experiencing some loneliness and isolation.
  • A nice way to explore the local area whilst also supporting those who may need it!
