Tackling inactivity & inequalities through active communities

Everyone working in the public, private or third sector across Surrey has a part to play in encouraging residents to be more active. That’s why the original Movement for Change strategy (MFC) was created. Since launch, partners ranging from health bodies to law enforcement have collaborated to help residents adopt active habits.

Improvements in physical and mental wellbeing from MFC-linked programmes are common, but other benefits are equally widespread, including combatting loneliness in older people, reducing anti social behaviour and opening new horizons for those most in need.

A learning event in Jan '23 saw local and national partners share their experiences of how physical activity is about much more than just getting people fit. Below you'll find the presentation slide decks from the day and some video tips on designing winning programmes.
