Get Involved


Our ‘whole system approach’ means we work in partnership with local ambassadors to commission work that supports our vision of ‘active lives as a way of life’.

Using local insight, we collaborate to test ideas and interventions within our community that encourage people to be active. This ‘test and learn’ approach asks what needs to happen to create real change, and evaluates if we got it right. To understand the impact we ‘listen’ to people’s stories using AI technology to analyse social conversations.

Some of the ideas and programmes we are already supporting are talked about below. If you’d like to pledge to do things differently and can advocate our ‘whole system change’ approach, get in touch. Together we can do things differently and help local people be more active.
