Having access to good quality, well maintained community paths close to where people live is essential for encouraging everyone to be active.
Welcoming, safe and accessible outdoor environments can improve our physical, mental and social health by allowing people to be physically active outdoors, and helping people to connect with and get closer to nature.
Our Community Paths team provides support to community organisations, community groups and access professionals improving local paths throughout Scotland.
We empower communities in Scotland to take the lead in creating, promoting and maintaining safe, welcoming community paths and active routes for everyone by sharing our expert knowledge and resources and by providing training and funding opportunities.
Our services and advice are free to community groups, community councils, development trusts and access professionals in Scotland.
Our friendly team are ready to offer you the advice, support, training and funding you need to develop and deliver your Community Paths project, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01259 218 888.
Our Community Paths programme is supported by Scottish Natural Heritage and Transport Scotland.
