Victoria Walks Inc. (A0052693U) is a walking-for-transport health promotion charity, managed by an independent voluntary board.
Our mission is more people walking every day.
Our vision is for vibrant, supportive and strong neighbourhoods and communities where people can and do choose to walk wherever possible.
There are 1001 reasons why increasing the number of people who walk every day will make our community happier, healthier, safer, stronger and more sustainable – but there are also 1001 reasons why the number of people who walk every day has dropped sharply in recent decades.
We believe that increasing walking will require action at both ends of the issue: encouraging more people to walk more often as well as tackling the obstacles that discourage walking in our neighbourhoods.
That’s what our work – and this website – is all about.
Whether you’re visiting for a bit of a nudge to remember why walking is good for you, to get some tips about where to walk by yourself, with kids or in a group, or you’re ready to take the challenge of transforming your neighbourhood into a walker’s paradise, you’ll find all the information you need right here on this site.
Victoria Walks is a voting member of the International Federation of Pedestrians (IFP) which was founded in 1963 as the umbrella organization for national pedestrian advocacy groups, and is a proud signatory of the International Charter for Walking.
As a registered health promotion charity, we are endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient – which means that all donations are fully tax deductible. Support us in our work and help keep Victorian's on their feet.
