The Department does not directly fund publicity campaigns to encourage walking, but it is providing unprecedented amounts of funding to enable more walking as part of the Prime Minister’s ambitious plans to significantly boost the amount of walking and cycling in England. This includes £2m for the Walk to School Outreach programme delivered by the charity Living Streets, which allows Living Streets to deliver initiatives such as Walk to School Week, which took place earlier this month.

Further details regarding future investment plans for walking and cycling will be outlined in the second Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS2) which will be published shortly.
