WE ARE LIVING STREETS SCOTLAND, PART OF THE UK CHARITY FOR EVERYDAY WALKING

We want to create a walking nation, free from congested roads and pollution, reducing the risk of preventable illness and social isolation and making walking the natural choice. We believe that getting Scotland walking means progress for everyone.

We work with professionals and politicians to make sure every community can enjoy vibrant streets and public spaces. Our Walk to School and Walk to Work campaigns reach every area of Scotland. Through our Walkable Communities project, we empower community groups to deliver improvements to their walking environment.

Progress starts here: one street, one school, one step at a time.
