Our society is ageing, and we need to think differently about getting older, and remaining physically and socially active in later life.
Walking combats loneliness and isolation by providing opportunities to stop and chat. Participation in regular organised walks provides regular physical and social activity for people who might otherwise be less active, and less socially engaged.
Even a few additional steps a day for the most sedentary can deliver vast mental and physical health benefits.
Listen to the experiences of men and women who participated in a project Living Streets helped deliver in Sheffield.
An innovative project in the West Midlands has seen staff at a local company provide led walks for older people in the area. Watch our video.
Our communities work focuses on supporting people to take action for better, more inclusive, more walkable streets, and spaces that meet everyone's needs - and that are safe, vibrant, and enjoyable for all.
Two Living Streets Scotland projects are helping local residents make their streets safer and more walkable.
