THE UK CHARITY FOR EVERYDAY WALKING
Our five-point Manifesto for Walking outlines, step by step, how walking is vital to answering so many major issues facing the UK as it heads to the polls on 12 December, from public health crises of obesity and inactivity, boosting the vibrancy of our public spaces, and improving air quality.

We believe that everyone should be able to walk on pavements without worrying about vehicles blocking their way.
That’s why we’re campaigning for an end to pavement parking up and down the UK. And the progress we’re making shows what we can do when we work together.
Please help us finish the job by becoming a Living Streets member.
Scotland has made history by becoming the first UK country to issue a nationwide ban on pavement parking.
The ban is the culmination of over a decade of campaigning by Living Streets Scotland and disablity charities - and is thanks to your support.
Read our response and find out what happens next.
After asking people in Wales how pavement parking affects them, the results are pretty emphatic, with 83% supporting a Wales-wide ban.
Our new report, with a foreword from Wales' Deputy Minister for Transport, outlines the case for action on irresponsible parking.
Something exciting is happening in communities up and down the country.
People are getting together to reclaim their streets and neighbourhoods and improve them for walking.
If you want to start a local group then we can offer you the support and guidance to get going.

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.
