A group of campaigners talking on the street near Kings Cross

Our Local Groups help build a walking nation one street, community, town and city at a time.

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. 

The time has come for us to create more liveable, healthier streets across the UK and to demand for practical and effective actions that make that happen.

Our local groups work with the local council, other neighbourhood groups and local residents to make streets fitter for walking. Whether that’s a new dropped kerb, getting new schemes modified or securing 20 mph limits across the board, our groups are winning changes big and small that make a real difference to people in their area.

Join a Local Group or with our help set one up.
