Local Pilot Officer

The Local Pilot is part of a national programme, instigated and principally funded by Sport England, and is the largest of 12 three year pilots in England. It is an intrinsic part of the health and social care transformation programme in Greater Manchester, including the Population Health Plan and the wider GM Moving Plan.

Specifically, the Local Pilot aims to accelerate progress with three audiences:

  • Children and young people aged 5-18 in out-of-school settings.
  • People out of work, and people in work but at risk of becoming workless.
  • People aged 40-60 with, or at risk of, long term conditions: specifically cancer, cardiovascular disease and respiratory disorders.

Additionally, the cross-cutting themes across each audience will focus on mental health and wellbeing, inactive people and reducing inequalities.
