Working together as a county, we have helped 1 MILLION people across Greater Manchester get physically active. GreaterSport set the target in 2010 as part of their Changing Lives strategy that they were delivering with partners across Greater Manchester on behalf of AGMA.
1,009,180 individuals across GM are physically active (according to Active People Survey and Health Survey figures for England). This is an increase of 26,293 with women having the biggest increase at 11%, with an additional 45,065 women taking part regularly. After one year of increased activity the savings to GM would be £647,590!
If this regular activity is maintained, GM could save up to £4,738,982 over 15 years! So now let's work together Greater Manchester the most active region!
