Researchers at University of Bristol are looking to speak to men and women who are close to retirement age, or who have recently retired, who do not currently do a lot of walking, to understand what would make it easier for them to walk more often.
They also want to ask about how they might be able to help people who do not do much walking to walk faster and in more challenging settings, such as up hills.
Participants who agree to take part in the study, will complete a brief online survey. An interview will then be carried out with a member of the project team that will last about 45 minutes.
The interview will be conducted over the phone or online via Skype (or similar). The interviewer will ask participants some questions about them, how much walking they do and what might help them to walk more often.
Participants will receive a £20 gift voucher for taking part.
