What We Do
We work in partnership and aim to achieve • an outstanding landscape, rich in wildlife and cultural heritage • a thriving, sustainable economy and vibrant communities • a strong connection between people and the landscape
The AONB Team is currently leading a project which sees a weekly programme of short guided walks for people living with dementia and their carers.
We want them to be able to continue to enjoy our beautiful landscapes, wildlife and culture and to benefit from the support of walking with others.
Thanks to funding from Morecambe Bay Partnership, we have been able to offer specialist training by the charity Dementia Adventure to volunteer walks leaders and the project was launched with our first walk on Tuesday 23rd April 2019. The walks take about an hour and there is always a chance for a chat and a cuppa afterwards in one of the local cafes.

This pilot project will initially run for 6 months when a full evaluation of the project experiences will be undertaken.
If you would like to volunteer or just to know a bit more about the project, please contact the AONB office on 01524 761034.
