What was GM Moving Investment Scheme?

The GM Moving Investment Scheme was an investment stream that allows a range of organisations to access money for projects which are outside of traditional funding sources. The scheme ran over three strands including This Girl Can, Live Well and the initial GM Moving phase. Over the course of the project we helped over 5000 people be more active in different settings and looked for projects that: 

  • Worked to deliver the 12 priorities of Greater Manchester Moving.
  • Address inactivity and helped to encourage healthy lifestyles
  • Contribute towards delivering the Government's five outcomes for sport within Greater Manchester: Physical Wellbeing; Mental Wellbeing; Individual Development; Social and Community Development; and Economic Development.

GM Moving Investment Scheme allowed organisations to try something new. We wanted to encourage innovative ideas that helped local community be more active.
