Following from our well-being weekend messages on social media- we want to continue to provide some tips on how you can look after your well-being this winter.

If the weather isn’t too miserable then we encourage you to try and spend some time outdoors this week. Surrounding yourself with nature and getting some fresh air is a great way to boost your feel-good endorphins. We’ve curated a list below of walks around Leeds that are inclusive and easily accessible by wheelchair or pushchair:

  • Chevin Forest ‘Suprise View’ (North Leeds)- wheelchair accessible. Accessible changing places and toilet
  • Golden Acre Park (North Leeds, Bramhope)- Disabled parking available. Motorised scooters are available to hire for free.
  • Roundhay Park (North-East Leeds)- Disabled parking. Wheelchair accessible paths.
  • Temple Newsam (south-East Leeds)- A circular walk by the ponds which is all accessible by wheelchair or pushchair. Motorized scooters available to hire.

When on a walk why not take some time to be mindful and ask yourselves these questions:

  • What can you hear?
  • What can you see?
  • What can you smell?
  • What can you feel?

We hope you find this information useful. remember to check back on our social medias everyday this month for our family services advent calendar which will include more well-being tips and activities.
