The Active Travel Champions project aims to increase levels of walking and cycling within community, workplace, educational and health settings through a programme of specifically targeted initiatives and interventions.An officer will recruit, train and support volunteer champions from within these settings and provide them with the skills, resources and information to spread the word and support their peers in becoming more physically active.By inspiring action at a community and individual level the project will become self sustaining by creating a wealth of skilled volunteers and resources to make a positive change in everyone’s travel behaviour.
