Living Streets is the national charity that stands up for pedestrians. With our supporters we work to create safe, attractive and enjoyable streets, where people want to walk.
Living Streets and walking
We have been the national voice for pedestrians throughout our 80 year history. In the early years, our campaigning led to the introduction of the driving test, pedestrian crossings and 30mph speed limits. Since then our ambition has grown. Today we influence decision makers nationally and locally, run successful projects to encourage people to walk, and provide specialist consultancy services to help reduce congestion and carbon emissions, improve public health, and make sure every community can enjoy vibrant streets and public spaces.
Across Scotland, we work with schools, communities, councils and politicians, representing the needs and concerns of pedestrians. Thanks to funding from Paths for All, Scottish Government, 1970 Trust, our supporters and others, we get more children walking to school, improve walking environments with communities and campaign for streets for all.
