Recognition for our Promising Practice

We are delighted to announce that our Physical Activity programme is one of the 36 chosen to feature in the Public Health England promising practice publication ‘Steps to solving inactivity’ as an example of a physical activity intervention currently being delivered in the UK. Our survey submission contributed to the huge response that ukactive received: a total of 952 programmes were submitted making this one of the largest surveys of physical activity programmes in England ever carried out.

“Steps to solving inactivity” examines the latest rates of inactivity in each top tier local authority and provides examples of activity interventions currently being delivered in those local areas.  It seeks to support local authorities, public health professionals and the wider activity sector to strengthen the impact of their physical activity programmes, interventions and services by highlighting existing gaps in provision and sharing guidance on how to achieve best practice at a national level.
