• More people moving in Greater Manchester…. but inequalities still exist

    More people are moving in Greater Manchester (GM) as highlighted by the recent release of Sport England’s Adults Active Lives Survey. Since 2015-16 inactivity levels have dropped by 1.7%, three times as much as nationally of 0.5%. However, there are still more than a quarter of adults (26.8%) that are inactive, which equates to 596,800 adults in GM. There are significant inequalities across people and place in inactivity levels.
