Sport Cheshire has changed its name to reflect its wider mission to get more people to be active and enjoy an active lifestyle with all the benefits that brings.
As an established charity of 25 years, Active Cheshire invests more than £500,000 each year on behalf of Sport England, Cheshire West and Chester Council and other partners. They use connections and local insight to commission programmes of activity that will enable schools, clubs, leisure operators, businesses, community groups, colleges and universities to sustain and grow participation themselves.
Active Cheshire has a goal to get more that 50, 000 people to be active by 2017. This is a tough target as more than 70% of adults in Cheshire do less than 30 minutes exercise 3 times per week. Although the health and well-being benefits of exercise are well-known to most people, many find it difficult to fit in periods of activity into their busy lives.
There are many ways of doing a just a few minutes activity each day which will help anyone build up a more active lifestyle. For a few great suggestions, click here.
