Our Healthier Safer Streets community programme, funded by Transport Scotland, supports us to work with local residents and their stakeholders to take action for more walkable streets.

We work in 5 local authority areas of Scotland each year, identifying and co-producing walking improvement projects at a neighbourhood level with community organisations and local authorities to make streets friendly and safer for everyone, and make walking the natural choice. We share project learning with partners via case studies and workshops. Recent work with community partners includes: 

Perth and Kinross

Work in partnership with Perth and Kinross Council and the Centre for Inclusive Living Perth and Kinross, improving accessibility and delivering more walkable streets for all.
