About Healthy Travel Wales
Healthy Travel Wales has grown out of work which began in Cardiff, and later the Vale of Glamorgan, to develop an approach across the public sector to healthy and sustainable travel.
The work is being led by Dr Tom Porter from the Cardiff and Vale local public health team, working with Public Services Boards (PSBs), and other public, private and third sector organisations. It followed the publication of the Moving Forwards report in 2017 (the report is summarised on the Why healthy travel? page).
Healthy Travel Charters are now being rolled out across Wales, with local leads in each area responsible for implementing the Charter (listed on the relevant Charter page).
We are grateful to the support of the following people and organisations.
Dr Tom Porter's time is funded as part of his role in Cardiff and Vale local public health team, with partners contributing their time as part of existing roles across Wales. A Healthy Travel Officer post is funded by Welsh Government and hosted by Sustrans.
Dr Sarah Aitken, Jayne Cornelius, Adrian Field, Andrew Gregory, Dr Sharon Hopkins, Fiona Kinghorn, Richard Lewis, Brian Marsh, Philip McDonnell, Eryl Powell, Lucy Usher; and all lead representatives for signatory organisations.
Cardiff and Vale UHB, Cardiff Council Transport team, Vale of Glamorgan Council, Cardiff PSB, Vale PSB, FOR Cardiff, Low Carbon Swansea Bay, Swansea University, Welsh Government; and all signatory organisations to the Charters.
