how we are creating A walking nation,
One step at a time.


We want to create a walking nation where people of all generations enjoy the benefits that this simple act brings. And we want all our streets to be fit for walking.

Our work to bring walking back and local projects deliver real change to overcome barriers to walking and our ground breaking initiatives such as the Walk to School campaign encourage millions of people to walk.

Here you can see what we're doing across the nation and find out more about the ways we can get people walking.

Pavement Parking

Parking on pavements is a major concern for our supporters and the general public.

High Streets

With the UK’s high streets and town centres struggling to adapt to the pace of digital change, a new approach is vital.

Air pollution

Walking is great for your health, but air pollution is putting the public at risk.
