Volunteer with us:
We rely upon volunteers to lead our run groups. You don’t need to be a particular speed or ability, just enthusiastic about running and willing to take a group out for a running fitness class in your local area.
Our classes generally take place during daylight; some during the day, others after working hours or at weekends.
As a volunteer, we would ask you to give an hour or so of your time regularly over a minimum number of weeks or months in order to enable us to keep the groups going.
Each of our run groups are led by one or more volunteers, at least one of whom must have completed the Leadership in Running Fitness (LiRF) course, which is a simple one day course delivered by UK Athletics.
The Leadership in Running Fitness course addresses barriers to participation in running, finding ways of appealing to those not traditionally attracted to running clubs.
Once qualified, you'll will have the skills and insurance needed to deliver fun and safe sessions to groups of runners with different abilities, including new runners and those who already run but want to progress.
We are able to offer support with the cost of the LiRF course in return for a commitment to volunteer with one of our run groups in your local area.
Currently all of our running groups are in London but we hope to expand soon..
Although our running groups are women-only, there are plenty of ways for men to volunteer with our charity and we welcome everyone who wishes to get involved

Partner with us:
If you are an organisation or charity that works with women in the community who may be vulnerable to homelessness and other related issues, we would love to talk to you about delivering our programme with you.
Alternatively, you can refer your clients to one of our existing running groups in your local area.
Please contact us if you have a suggestion for a local service that we might partner with or to discuss how we can help provide a running group for your service users.
Join a running group:
If you are a woman who is affected by issues connected with homelessness, or you have been in the past, please get in touch to find out about trying one of our free running fitness classes in your local area.
It’s free, fun and easy. No previous experience is needed and you get to keep the shoes and clothes plus refuel on some snacks afterwards.
Please get in touch with us to find out more or ask your progression worker, shelter or a service provider (e.g. Crisis UK).
