WHAT WE DO:
Here at A Mile in Her Shoes, we encourage women who are at risk of homelessness or affected by related issues to try running as a way of exercising, socialising, lifting confidence and boosting self-esteem.
We work to identify and remove any barriers to running, enabling our participants to access the same mental, physical, health and social benefits from running as any other woman.
We create, lead and support running fitness groups through a volunteer-led programme. Sessions are provided by trained and insured female volunteers who are qualified to lead mixed ability groups.
The content of every one of our sessions is designed to be fun and suitable for all fitness levels including absolute beginners.
Everybody is welcome and we help individuals reach their own goals together.
We provide all the appropriate clothing including sports bras and footwear suitable for running. Much of the kit is donated second-hand - mostly from other runners - but it is all in good condition and the sports bras and socks are always brand new.
