A New Approach Sees Active Cheshire Go Local

ACTIVE CHESHIRE ARE GOING HYPERLOCAL WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF PLACE BASED TEAMS; WORKING TO IMPROVE LIVES IN COMMUNITIES ACROSS CHESHIRE & WARRINGTON THROUGH PHYSICAL ACTIVITY.   

For the past few years Active Cheshire has worked on a sector basis with staff spread across the whole of Cheshire & Warrington working in specific sectors.  However, from February 2017 Active Cheshire will adopt a place-based focus, respecting the very different communities that the team work amongst.  

This approach will enable place focussed teams to build a holistic picture of their areas, identify cross sector opportunities and develop a fully cohesive strategy for improving lives through physical activity specific to the local community.

Local teams will support Local Authorities and partners from all sectors to:

  1. Understand the active and inactive communities, their needs and the barriers preventing regular movement.

  2. Change the sedentary habits of local communities by building physical activity into everyday life. This may be through school or workplace initiatives but will also include the development of active infrastructure, public realm, housing and transport.

  3. Support the development of the local provider market across all sectors to ensure that it remains resilient, relevant and accessible.

  4. Secure investment to test new interventions and develop partnerships.

  5. Promote information that will educate, enable and empower people to build physical activity into their everyday lives themselves.

 

Active Cheshire CEO, Anne Boyd, said:

“We recognise that there is a strong team of partners and providers in existence already within each locale, and we are confident that with their combined energy, ambition and resources, we can affect change in a sustainable way.

I am certain that our local guys would welcome an opportunity to meet and learn more about the ambitions of communities and organisations locally and to understand how we might add value.  We are very much looking forward to strengthening our relationships locally across Cheshire & Warrington in 2017.”

 

Active Cheshire remain dedicated to getting residents and employees more active on a regular basis; improving the health, wellbeing and prosperity of communities in the boroughs of Cheshire & Warrington.
