GreaterSport is a high performing charity passionate about changing lives through physical activity and sport. Our vision is to make Greater Manchester the most active region in England. We are also the Active Partnership for Greater Manchester, one of a network across the country who work collaboratively to create the conditions for an active nation and use the power of sport and physical activity to transform live.
Our mission is to get 2 million people in Greater Manchester moving by 2021, see how we are progressing.
The campaign aims to inspire, reassure and support people to be active by showing people living with a variety of conditions – both visible and invisible – on their own journeys to being active.
As more opportunities to be active resume, new guidance released today will help providers to enable welcoming, and more accessible environments.
