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 the two Public Services Boards (PSBs), and other public bodies. It followed the publication of the Moving Forwards report in 2017 (the report is summarised on the Why healthy travel? page).
Following the successful launch of the Charters in those areas, there has been interest in introducing Charters elsewhere in Wales and in different sectors, with roll out of the Charters more widely commencing early 2020. As the work rolls out, local leads in each area are responsible for implementing the Charter (listed on the relevant Charter page).
We are grateful to the support of the following people and organisations, in particular Fiona Kinghorn and Andrew Gregory.
Work in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, including initial work on the Charter, is being funded by Cardiff and Vale UHB.
Funding of the wider roll out across Wales is being supported by Aneurin Bevan UHB and Public Health Wales.
