Free Range Kids are children and young people who experience freedom from their front door. They have the confidence to travel independently, play outdoors and explore their local community, and have the skills, opportunities and support to do so safely.
The enormous rise in the speed and volume of traffic has driven children indoors or into cars to be ferried around. Fear of traffic danger is twice as much a concern to parents as 'stranger danger'.
At Sustrans, we think it's time for change. We believe every child deserves to be free range for the sake of their health, happiness and well-being.
