Streets for People – Levenshulme and Burnage

Streets for people are a local group of residents campaigning for safer and active travel and Levenshulme and Burnage.

We hold direct actions, public events, and push for local and Manchester-wide politicians to help enable the positive changes our neighbourhoods need.
