The work Active Cheshire is to change the lives of local people through physical activity and sport. In fact, most of what Active Cheshire does is to do with change. Encouraging behavioural change, changing attitudes, mindsets, and habits. The Charity is constantly learning to adapt to the needs and challenges of working with an increasingly inactive society.
