Live and Move aiming to increase activity and wellbeing across the city
Published: 15 March 2021
Live and Move is working to create more opportunities for people across the city to be active in their daily lives and increase overall wellbeing.
The Sport England Local Delivery Pilot for Exeter and Cranbrook is a partnership of organisations and community groups, led by the City Council and funded by Sport England.
Work is taking place with schools and families to learn how young people and families can be active together, and with workplaces to explore ways to make the working day more active.
Live and Move shares the city’s vision of reducing inequality, increasing wellbeing and achieving a Net Zero Carbon City by 2030.
It is helping to find out what changes can be made to streets and highways to make walking, cycling and being in a neighbourhood more enjoyable.
Cllr Duncan Wood, Lead Councillor for Leisure & Physical Activity, said: “We are working to make Exeter the most active location in the country, and Live and Move is an important part of this. The vision is to find ways to support people, no matter what age or ability, to move a bit more day to day.
“Over time these habits we choose for ourselves, can positively impact our personal health and wellbeing but also our families, local communities and environment.
“By learning about different ways that people choose to be more active, we can then support these choices, activities and lifestyles.”
Live and Move is keen to hear from people about their own experiences with how much movement they do or don’t do now, what they would like to do, what challenges there are to being active and what would make being active easier for them.
