Take Steps towards cleaner air this June.

Together we can make an impact!

You shouldn’t be forced to breathe in dirty air, yet millions of us across the UK are surrounded by toxic air, damaging our health and worsening lung conditions.  

By cleaning up the air we could …

Prevent 36,000 people dying early every year

Cut annual hospital admissions by 20,000, reducing the burden on our NHS

Reduce asthma attacks and flare-ups

Complete our clean air actions alongside your walks to unlock our special Clean Air badges and be featured on the Clean Air Champions page!

Sign our petition, write to your MP, and swap a journey in the car for one on your feet.

Can I take part in Take Steps if I have a lung condition?

Yes of course! We’d love for you to join Take Steps. Being active can help you manage your condition. If you’re not comfortable going outside you can complete your Take Steps walks inside your house or around your garden if you would prefer.

You can always chat to our lovely Helpline teams too, if you have any questions about walking and your condition. Call the Asthma UK helpline on 0300 222 5800 or the British Lung Foundation helpline on 03000 030 555.

What’s the guidance for walking outside with Covid-19 restrictions?

Take Steps is designed so you can do the whole challenge virtually. You can form a virtual team so you can all contribute to your distance goal and fundraise together as well. And remember, from flights of stairs to laps of the garden – it all counts! You don’t have to take on a 10km hike to Take Steps.

Always check the latest Government guidance before organising your walks. The guidance is different from place to place and can change regularly. When taking part in Take Steps, please follow all Government guidance and social distancing rules. For the most up to date advice, please look at the Government website for your area: England | Wales | Scotland | Northern Ireland
