We are looking for a volunteer to join our Move It team to help us to deliver our exercise sessions.

The exercise sessions are currently virtual and face to face based at Risley, Derby. There are bus services from the city centre's but due to the rural nature it may be advantageous to be a car driver, free onsite parking is available.
