Live and Move Everyday Active Strategy
Published: 14 December 2022
Everyone is being encouraged to move more in their everyday lives as the best possible medicine for bodies and minds.
Any activity that increases heart and breathing rates a little every day is good in the long run.
This is why Live and Move exists, funded by Sport England and hosted by Exeter City Council as part of its Active and Healthy People team. The vision is that Exeter and Cranbrook are places where everyone can have an active lifestyle every day.
Live and Move has launched its new Everyday Active strategy, detailing ways of working together in places, with people and communities, to make everyday lives better.
Cllr Josie Parkhouse said: “I’m incredibly proud to be the Portfolio Holder for Leisure Services & Physical Activity, with responsibility for Live and Move. I can see the work that has already been done and the impact the team are having in our communities in both Exeter and Cranbrook.
“In the current economic climate, keeping active and healthy is getting harder, travelling is getting more difficult, and people and communities are under pressure on lots of fronts. Live and Move exists to address the health inequalities that can be tackled through increased physical activity, contributing to making everyday lives more active.
“By bringing people together and working alongside individuals, organisations, communities and policy makers, we will influence strategies, remove barriers, and change things for the better.”
