How can you get involved?

We believe that active people need an active world to live in. We can't keep doing the same things and hope they will help everyone. Traditional health campaigns encourage us to be more active, but there is little evidence that they work. Increasing sport is more likely to help those of us who are better off and already somewhat active, leaving the rest of us further behind. We have to think differently.

 

We need local support groups, opportunities to be active, better designed towns and health services that help us to get moving, and workplaces that don’t force us to sit all day. Most of all, it means working out together what needs to change and making it happen, so physical activity becomes a normal part of everyday life.

When we hear from others – people like us – it can move us to action. Get in touch and share your story, however much or little you'd like.
