We need to make walking safer and easier for everyoneWill your next MP support a more walkable Britain?

Living Streets campaigners have been working together with older people to raise the profile of the need for more walkable and accessible streets ahead of the next election.

Thousands of people have taken action to ask politicians to make walking safer and easier in the next government.

Making walking safer and easier for everyone, especially older and more vulnerable people can play a major part in tackling some of the country’s biggest challenges.

More walking strengthens communities, improves mental and physical health and is good for the environment.

So why not write to your MP candidates now asking them to support Living Streets’ manifesto?
