Our campaigns

Take a look at some of our recent campaigns to make it easier for people to walk and cycle.

Create Spaces for Nature on the National Cycle Network

Sustrans Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021

Many UK wildlife species are in steep decline.

The National Cycle Network can be part of the solution. With over 5,000 miles of traffic-free paths, the Network provides safe, linear routes for animals connecting their valuable habitats. With your support, the paths can offer wildlife the opportunity to thrive once more.

Which is why from 30 November to 7 December we're raising money to enable our ecologists to create spaces for nature on the Network.
