Walking Group


We have walking groups, you can join any of the walks.


Our ‘Walk & Talk’ groups combine both physical and mental health. They are led by trained Walk Leaders, attended by an experienced Counsellor (a ‘Talking Therapist’) and followed by refreshments and social interaction.

We believe there is a link between physical and mental health. Our ‘Walk & Talk’ groups combine both.

Basildon Mind are providing free and friendly walking groups weekly around the Basildon Borough. 

It is a well known that both Physical and Mental health are equally important! So please join us, visit our Facebook/Instagram sites or call 01268 289700 for full/latest details.

Who can come:  ANYONE!  Adults, Families and Youths 

How long will it last: The walk will be for approximately one hour and on many of the walks they will visit a local café for social interaction and refreshments (you buy your own) for 30 minutes.

If you’re interested, or need more details, please contact us at volunteering@basmind.org
