Active Cheshire’s mission is to embed physical activity into all aspects of everyday life by 2040.
We are a multi-award winning Charity that are passionate about positively changing the lives of people in our region and beyond.
What does Active Cheshire Do?
It is our job to engage, educate, enable, inspire and influence the local community as well as a wide range of organisations, stakeholders and partners locally, nationally and even globally to become active.
We face an increasingly inactive society, so we aim to provide services and inspire people to move more. Changing hearts and minds, encouraging behavioural change, changing attitudes and habits.
We have an inclusive approach, which means our reach is everyone. All age groups, genders, ethnicities, backgrounds and circumstances whether or not they are active or non-active – across the general public and organisations of all sizes and sectors.
The result of our work is to change people’s behaviour and habits towards being active, in order to improve their overall wellbeing and to live healthier, happier, more enriched, longer lives – that as a consequence are more productive and prosperous.
How do Active Cheshire do this?
First formed in 1989, Active Cheshire now take a whole system approach to work with a diverse range of organisations to have a positive impact in all walks of life; ensuring people can embed activity into all aspects of everyday life – at home, school, in the workplace and everywhere in between.
We work to a Blueprint to tackle physical inactivity that has been inspired by a local MOVEment, co-produced by a dedicated taskforce and cross-sector partners. The Blueprint document sets out a whole system approach to tackling physical activity and targets 5 key pillars – Active Design, Active Kids, Active Workplace, Active Minds, and Activators.
Who does Active Cheshire work with?

We want to make sustainable physical activity accessible to all by changing the way people think and their habits, as well as providing opportunities and helping people realise that any physical activity, not matter how small, is a success.
