Keeping covid-safe in a constantly changing world
With coronavirus regulations regularly changing, it’s important to ensure that the delivery of and participation in sport and physical activity remains covid-compliant. Keeping everyone safe and moving remains vitally important for our health and wellbeing. Stay up to date with #KeepGMMoving here.


Learnings from GM Active Ageing
The two-year Sport England funded project aimed to support older adults to move more and to provide evidence about the best ways to engage those over 55 in physical activity. Join us as we share what we have learned. Register for free here.


Back to school with The Daily Mile 
In Greater Manchester we are getting closer to the incredible milestone of 500 primary schools signed up to The Daily Mile. Find out more about the #GMDailyMile and how we can support schools here.

What can we do to make walking to school the norm?
We spoke to Annette Turner, Population Health Programme Manager at Tameside Council, for her views on making the school run a more active and enjoyable experience. Read the blog here.
