Active Steps Legacy

Community Together CIC has been working in Partnership with Sustrans, Staffordshire County Council and Tamworth Borough Council to secure the legacy and good work started in Tamworth through the ‘Active Steps’ Project.

Participants are able to access local walk and cycle groups from beginner to intermediate level as well as information, advice and equipment that enable them to walk or cycle more often for short everyday trips.

It’s particularly suitable for people for have existing low levels of physical activity and want to start moving more.  It’s also suited to those with physical or mental health issues.
