What if there was a network of walking routes that connected all of Great Britain’s towns and cities? That’s what we are making.

Slow Ways is an initiative to create a network of walking routes that connect all of Great Britain’s towns and cities as well as thousands of villages.

Ultimately we want to inspire and support more people to walk and wheel, more often, further and for more purposes. 

Want to help us? See below for vacancies.

We’ve made a great start. So far volunteers have created nearly 8,000 routes that stretch for over 120,000km. Our current phase of work is focussed on engaging people from across Great Britain to walk, review and survey all these routes.

Our team has established a new start-up called Slow Ways, with thanks to funding from The National Lottery Community Fund’s Growing Great Ideas programme.

Inclusion matters to us. We are especially interested to hear from people who have experiences that will help us to connect with a greater diversity of people. 

We are an equal opportunities organisation. All our employment decisions are made without regard to race, colour, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, citizenship or marital status. You must be located and legally allowed to work in the UK.
