Following the launch of GM Moving last month, work is beginning on the first year implementation plan, with a draft version available to look at here.

Achieving the ambition of GM Moving will take the whole system, so we are keen to capture the ideas, creativity, and energy of everyone as we enter this next phase.

There are a number of questions to consider within this. Thank you for taking the time to contribute. Please select one or more of the areas of the plan that you would like to contribute to. On 22nd September there will be a workshop where we will explore ideas further.  You can book a place on the GM Moving workshop here.


Priority 1: Lead policy, legislation, and system change to support active lives, ensuring that physical activity becomes a central feature in policy and practice related to planning, transport, health and social care, economic development, education, and the environment.

Priority 2: We will provide strategic leadership to secure system change for physical activity and sport across the life course, with person centred, preventative approaches in an integrated system.

Priority 3: Start Well - We will ensure that young people aged 0-4 will have the best active start in life with physical literacy prioritised as a central feature of starting well.

Priority 4: Develop Well - Greater Manchester will be the best place in England for children, young people and young adults aged 5-25 to grow up, developing their life chances through a more active lifestyle, with a focus on reducing inequalities.

Priority 5: Live Well - Increased physical activity and sport across the adult population, reducing inequalities and contributing to health, wealth and wellbeing.

Priority 6: Age Well - Make Active Ageing a central pillar within the Greater Manchester Ageing Hub supporting the Greater Manchester ambition for an age friendly city-region, which will lead to better health, wellbeing and independence.

Priority 7: We will develop more active and sustainable environments and communities.

Priority 8: We will maximise the contribution of the physical activity and sport sector to economic growth across Greater Manchester.

Priority 9: Build the knowledge, skills and understanding of the workforce across GM to embed physical activity, make every contact count, and develop a diverse workforce fit to deliver the ambitions of this plan.

Priority 10: We will ensure that Evidence, Data and Insight inform the development of policy and practice to support active lives.

Priority 11: We will embed high quality evaluation into all GM Moving work, developing quality standards, helping to understand impact, learn and improve and support advocacy.
