To achieve our target of 2 million people moving by 2021 our priority will be working with under-represented groups in terms of physically activity and health identified by leading evidence. We have determined the following groups in Greater Manchester as constituting approximately 75% of all inactive persons, who will be the primary focus over the next 4 years:
•People with a limiting illness or disability
•Girls and women under the age of 44
•People in lower socio-economic groups aged 25 and over
Each of these groups can be explored further on the tabs below and the evidence report attached as a download.
Targeting these groups enable us to work across ethnicity and older age groups to tackle inactivity and poor health.
