  • Supporting people in Surrey to fulfil their potential

Physical activity is recognised as a major part of the solution for many health issues.  We are in the process of co-producing a new Physical Activity Strategy for Surrey with a range of partners and end users and would appreciate your views.

Health, public, or third sector professional?

Join our virtual summit on Physical Inactivity and Obesity on 12 November, 9.30 - 12.30 to give us your views on how we can bring a 'whole system' approach to tackling these dual problems in Surrey.

Residents' physical fitness and weight has arguably never been more important that in the present pandemic and alongside Public Health Surrey we'd like your help to explore the wider benefits of improving people's wellbeing and promoting community development. 

The 2020 vision

The 2015-20 Surrey Physical Activity Strategy set the ambition for Surrey to be the most active county in England and reduce inactivity by 1% every year. Partners from a wide range of sectors worked to increase participation rates in the whole population, focusing on targeting inactivity in under-represented groups to reduce health inequalities.

Example
P A levels by borough. Shows Waverley most active, followed by Guildford & Surrey Heath. Spelthorne most inactive

Statistics released each October show that we are on course to get more people ‘active’ (150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week) and reduce those who are classed as inactive (less than 30 minutes).  Working with partners, our work has contributed to Surrey being consistently listed in the top 10 most active counties in England in the Active Lives Survey results from Sport England.

However, there are still too many residents who are not realising the huge benefits to their mental and physical wellbeing by moving more. This has huge implications, for our local schools, employers, social services and hospitals. There is still more work to be done to help people find their way to live longer, happier, more active lives.
