About the Ramblers
The Ramblers is Britain’s walking charity. From the countryside to the city, we work across England, Scotland and Wales to improve the places where people walk, and to inspire people from all backgrounds to walk for pleasure or purpose.
The Ramblers has more than 125,000 members, more than 10,000 active volunteers and many other supporters. In 2010 the Ramblers will celebrate its 75th anniversary.
The four key aim of the Ramblers, set out in the strategy document ‘Fresh Air, Firm Ground’, are:
- Good quality walking environments: people are more likely to walk, and to enjoy it more, if their walking environments are of the highest quality.
- Making walking accessible to all: we wamt to do much more to spread the positive message about walking, ensuring that those who do not currently walk very much have access to the pleasures which walking can bring.
- Communicating our work: we want to ensure that the image we convey encourages potential supporters.
- A well-run organisation: we need to maximise the scope for success by ensuring our organisation has efficient organisational and financial structures in place.
