Living Streets’ Walk to School Outreach programme has received £2.1m from the DfT. The initiative, which has been running with DfT support since 2017, promotes the health and environmental benefits of walking to school for children and their families. The DfT said the programme has a key role to play in the Government’s ambition to ensure more than half of children aged 5 to 10 are walking to school by 2025. The funding builds on the £1m that the DfT gave Living Streets.
