Become a parkrun Outreach Ambassador for Mental Health

Tring annual review cover

We want to encourage more people with disabilities and long term health conditions to participate at parkrun and to help us achieve this aim, we have set up a network of volunteer Outreach Ambassadors who have been doing great work over the last year to promote parkrun to people living with a range of disabilities and health conditions.

 

The parkrun PROVE project (parkrun: running or volunteering for everyone) aims to increase levels of participation at parkrun for those living with disabilities or long term health conditions whether that’s through walking, running or volunteering.

 

We’re now bringing Mental Health conditions into the programme and would like to appoint a number of volunteer Outreach Ambassadors for Mental Health to help with this work.

 

We’re looking for passionate parkrunners who are either living with mental health conditions themselves, or who have a friend or family member who is, or who are health care professionals working in the field of mental health.

 

The role description below will tell you a little bit more about the role. If you’d like to help us with this exciting work, please register your interest using the form below. You can find out more about the parkrun PROVE project here.
