WE ARE LIVING STREETS, 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.

In Wales we have a real chance to achieve the ambitions of the groundbreaking Active Travel Act and reverse these trends.

We can be ambitious for the next generation by increasing the number of school children walking to school.

We must also bring down the barriers of walking, removing the real and the perceived dangers like fast traffic and pavement parking.

A walking Wales will be healthier, cleaner, safer and more connected. So let’s get Wales walking.

Want to get active on active travel? Every Local Authority in Wales needs to draw up plans for walking and cycling routes. Add your voice to our latest campaign.

Our new toolkit is a step-by-step guide to running one of your own.

Get Wales Walking

Help us create a walking Wales – healthier, cleaner, safer and more connected.
The Assembly elections in 2016 gave us a real opportunity to push walking up the political agenda and make real changes across the country.

We called for all parties to prioritise walking in their manifestos.

Who we work with in Wales

We’re creating a walking nation. We’ve got the know-how to make it happen but we can’t do it alone. Together with our partners and funders we can make extraordinary things happen.
