About Move the Masses

Move the Masses is a charity based in York.

Our mission is to create healthy communities by enabling people to improve their wellbeing through exercise.

  • We break down barriers to exercise, especially for those most vulnerable
  • We provide flexible, rewarding volunteering opportunities linked to physical activity 
  • We empower people to reclaim their local public spaces as places to exercise
  • We promote the physical and mental health benefits that regular activity brings

We also have a walking buddy scheme called Move Mates, our aim is to give people the confidence to get outside and get moving with one of our volunteers.

A Move Mate will meet someone at their front door and accompany them wherever they want to go; perhaps it’s a walk to the local shop or to pick up a prescription, or it could be a walk to an activity they’ve wanted to attend, or just a walk around the block to get them moving and have a chat.

We can help anybody of any age, people facing:

mobility worries

fear of falling

social anxiety

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
