Movement for Change

The Physical Activity Strategy ‘Movement for Change’ (or click for the plain text version) is a high level plan that supports Surrey's Health & Wellbeing strategy . It encourages a new way of working to help everyone adopt a more active lifestyle, with a particular focus on those who need it most.

The strategy offers a blueprint which can be used to underpin the day to day programmes and actions that will make a difference to people's lives. It's been coproduced with residents, volunteers, community groups and professional across Surrey.

With your help, we can create a #MovementForChange in Surrey. Register now for the launch event for professionals on 22 Sept.


 A note on the 2030 Community Vision for Surrey

A note on the 2030 Community Vision for Surrey

By 2030 the Surrey Health & Wellbeing Strategy - of which Movement for Change forms a part - will help to deliver the Community Vision for Surrey by:

  • Helping people in Surrey to lead healthy lives
  • Supporting the mental health and emotional wellbeing of people in Surrey
  • Supporting people in Surrey to fulfil their potential 

We know that being active is one of the single most effective and sustainable ways to achieve the Vision for Surrey.  From better mental and physical health to social cohesion and a greener future, movement benefits us from the day we are born to old age.
