Greater Manchester Moving is the comprehensive plan to reduce inactivity and increase participation in physical activity and sport that is aligned to the Greater Manchester Population Health Plan priority themes and wider reform agenda.
Sport and physical activity among children and young people has been found to increase attainment, improve mental wellbeing and increase opportunities for social interaction yet 6/10 children and young people in GM are not active enough to benefit their health.
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).
