Sustrans Looks For Kings Heath Walking & Cycling Champions

Sustrans are on the look out for Kings Heath people who can inspire others to walk and cycle for more of their everyday journeys.

The next induction session is Tuesday 24th September, 2pm – 4.30pm at our new office in Digbeth.

Champions can volunteer within their workplace, community or school in Birmingham. There are lots of easy ways for Kings Heath people to get involved, whether they want to help out on a small scale or take a more active role.

Some of the ways volunteers can get involved are:

  • Planning and organising group rides or walks
  • Giving travel advice and talks
  • Setting up bike user groups
  • Holding an information stall
  • Create an information display
  • Setting up cycle commuter groups

Sustrans also welcomes new ideas from volunteers and full training, support and resources are provided.

Tuesday’s session will cover overcoming obstacles and communicating the benefits of active travel, how to give a talk, run an information stand and create a display.
