Companion walking service

Would you like to go out more but find it difficult to go out on your own? If you’d like to go for a walk in your community, to the park, local café or shops, then we can help.

Our carefully chosen and trained volunteer walking companions are keen to support you. We will match you with a local companion with similar interests so that you can enjoy a walk together.

Accredited Visitor Service:  

Our Accredited Visitor Service (AVS) provides companionship to people over 65 who are lonely and would like a regular visit from a friendly volunteer. We aim to match people with volunteers who live in the same area and have similar interests. Our volunteers visit for about an hour each week.

Steady as You Go Exercise Classes:

Our ‘Steady as You Go’ exercise classes are available around the Wellington region. These classes are designed to improve strength and balance and help prevent a fall. 

SAY Go classes improve:

  • Balance and leg strength
  • Flexibility
  • General fitness and wellbeing

And are a great way to meet new people.

Classes consist of a combination of sitting, standing and walking exercises, and take around an hour. More information: https://www.acwellington.org.nz/saygoexercise/
