GM Moving is a ‘Call to Action’ based on the Plan for Physical Activity (PA) and Sport in the Greater Manchester City Region for 2017-21 and Population Health Plan themes. With a target of 75% of people being active or fairly active by 2025 its ambition is to get everyone in Greater Manchester more active, to secure the fastest and greatest improvement to the health, wealth and wellbeing of the 2.8m people of Greater Manchester. It is also the largest of 12 Sport England place-based pathfinder 'Local Delivery Pilots' to build healthier, happier communities thereby informing future approaches nationwide.
There is a huge scale and diversity of partners, populations and levels of PA requiring new thinking and approaches.
