A walking nation starts with you

For most of us, walking is as simple as putting on a pair of shoes and opening our front door. Yet it’s not always that easy.

That’s why we’re building a movement about a movement.

Together we can create a nation where people from all generations walk and enjoy the benefits that this simple act brings.

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

We know that our strength lies in passionate and knowledgable people speaking out for the streets where they live.

Let's walk together


A key part of our vision rests on the principle that, if we fix the Walk to School, we will go a long way to making our streets more walkable.

This October, we are calling on children, parents, carers and teachers (and everyone else!) to take to the streets, let us know how their walk to school measures up, and help us overcome the obstacles to the Walk to School.

Squirrel count

They’re everywhere! See how many of these furry critters you can spot each day… obviously the longer they make your walk, the easier it will be to beat your existing score.
