    Tapper Funeral Service

    Walking

    Tapper Funeral Service are teaming up with Forest Holme of Poole to provide regular, monthly walks.
    Some walks are short and on the flat; others are longer and more challenging; there is something for everyone who is reasonably mobile. Common to all of the walks is that professional guide David Knox plans and advertises the route well in advance, ensures all safety concerns have been taken care of, researches the places of interest on route and plans a tea-room or similar for refreshments afterwards.
    These walking events will be free of charge to anyone person who is bereaved but for organisational reasons David needs to know in advance who is attending. Please feel free to contact us to express your interest.

How does this work?

The tailored approach LiveWell Dorset uses to come up with solutions to the things that are stopping us achieving our goals, is based upon work done by University College London developing the COM-B model of behaviour change. In this model, all behaviour is influenced by understanding a person’s capability to change, their opportunity to change and their motivation to change. By understanding which of these is the biggest barrier to change, we can tailor support accordingly. This model of behaviour change is at the centre of the support we offer, online and in person.
