Driven by local need and ambition, we work with a wide range of health, sport, education, environment, transport and business partners to find new ways of embedding physical activity into all aspects of everyday life.
Active Cheshire is the lead body for physical activity and sport in Cheshire & Warrington. Since 1989 the organisation has been working across the 3 sub-regions of Cheshire West, Cheshire East and Warrington to improve the health, well-being and life expectancy of local people. Since 2014 Active Cheshire has focused on changing behaviours to encourage embedding physical activity into everyday life.
As an organisation Active Cheshire works across the whole of the market partnering with a diverse range of organisations to have a positive impact in all walks of life; ensuring people can get active at home, school, in the workplace and everywhere in between.
We want to make physical activity accessible to all by changing the way people think and their habits, as well as providing opportunities and helping people realise that any physical activity, not matter how small, is a success.
