The project was supported by a consortium of donors from the United Kingdom under the leadership of Natural England. The consortium included the Department of Health England, Environment Agency, Countryside Council for Wales, Public Health Wales, Physical Activity & Nutrition Networks for Wales, Forestry Commission and the Scottish Government, Public Health Directorate. It was also supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health and by the WHO Regional Office of Europe.

It was carried out in close collaboration with HEPA Europe, the European network for the promotion of health-enhancing physical activity, and the Transport, Health and Environment Pan-European Programme (THE PEP). The consensus workshop (Oxford, United Kingdom, 1-2 July 2010) was facilitated by the University of Oxford.

The development of HEAT Walking was also financially supported by the European Union in the framework of the Health Programme 2008-2013 (Grant agreement 2009 52 02). The views expressed herein can in no way be taken to reflect the official opinion of the European Union.
