Working closely with partners nationally and across Greater Manchester we bring expertise, value, leadership and a strong track record of delivery to the acceleration of physical activity and sport engagement in our county by working across the 12 priorities of Greater Manchester Moving.
Physical activity can reduce the risk of all-cause mortality by 30%, yet over a quarter (26.8%) of the Greater Manchester population is inactive and nearly 4/10 (39.4%) are not active enough to benefit their health (i.e. not reaching Chief Medical Officer guidelines of 150 minutes a week).
Research into the costs of physical inactivity, showed that NHS providers in England spent more than £900m in 2009/10 in treating people with diseases that could be prevented if more people were physically active.
