Active Reach Phase One Evaluation
The great success of Active Reach's first phase saw residents from Blackbird Leys and Greater Leys supported throughout COVID-19 to keep physically active. Thanks to funding from Sport England's Tackling Inequalities Fund, partners including Access Sport, Age UK Oxfordshire, Aspire Oxford, KEEN, Oxford Hub, Oxfordshire Mind, OXSRAD and Oxfordshire Youth were able to provide online classes, local volunteer networks, bike libraries, sports holiday schemes, young leaders' training programmes and specialist physical activity resources.
We were delighted to take part in a storytelling evaluation through The Old Fire Station to measure the impact Active Reach has had on our local community. The process collected 6 stories from participants who had been involved in Active Reach in different ways.
