Our Walking Advocates

An image of MPs and Living Streets staff outside the Houses of Parliament

Living Streets’ Walking Advocates are parliamentarians who support our mission to achieve a better walking environment and inspire people to walk and wheel more.

Walking Advocates want a society where children can walk to school on safe, unpolluted and enjoyable streets.

They recognise the benefits of walking for our health, climate and local economy, and promote policies that create better environments for people to walk and wheel.

If you are an MP or Peer who would like further information or who wishes to join our group of advocates, please contact
