Walking for Health is a physical activity intervention with the primary purpose of making a positive difference to people’s physical health. This report presents research into the economic costs of delivering the Walking for Health programme. These include financial (or accounting) costs and opportunity costs, which are the values of the foregone costs that could have been dedicated some other objective, based on a small sample of schemes representative of the variety across the programme as a whole.
