THE UK CHARITY FOR EVERYDAY WALKING
Public health. Air pollution. Climate change. Transport. Road safety.
These are all big issues affecting our towns and cities, and reducing car dominance and making walking the easiest and safest option for everyday journeys is a key part of the solution.
With national, local and mayoral elections taking place in May, now is the time for our leaders to choose walking.
Our new five-year strategy
Our vision for walking is bold, ambitious and reflects the changed world we live in.
We want to see three outcomes:
- people choose walking
- better streets for walking
- all walks of life - we want walking to be for everyone.

Walking is good for our minds, our bodies and our neighbourhoods and has been a lifeline during the pandemic, helping people stay active and connected. It’s one habit we should all be keeping beyond lockdown. Join us and #WalkThisMay.
Thousands of children across the UK will celebrate the benefits of walking during Walk to School Week (17 - 21 May 2021). Classroom packs with activities for pupils to complete on the way to school and in the classroom are available now – order yours today and get ready to earn your ‘WALKING SUPERPOWERS’.
Walking is man's best medicine
A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s less than half.
We want to reverse this decline. We want children to be energised and empowered, and to make walking to school their natural choice.
And we know just how to do it.
