The Springvale Service for Children’s Young Mothers Walking group is a supported walking group for mothers under 25 years of age. The aim of the group is to improve the physical and mental health and wellbeing of young mothers and their children through the formation of a strong support network and outdoor physical exercise.

When: Every Thursday beginning April 7th 2016

Where: Group will begin and end at Springvale Service for Children,

23-28 Lightwood Road, Springvale.

Time: 10am-12pm

Group members are encouraged to bring their own snacks, water, hats and sunscreen each week. For more information or to register your interest please contact Carolyn on (03) 8558 3800.
