Active Reach: Banbury and Abingdon
The second phase of Active Reach was focused on parts of Banbury and Abingdon to help people in greatest need get active and improve their health, wellbeing and life chances. The key objectives of Phase Two were:
- To address the most critical levels of inactivity and the inequality gap across Oxfordshire, which is set to widen as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
- To create a community-based, collaborative way of working to increase the activity levels of those in the greatest need, supporting physical and mental wellbeing, and life chances.
- Co-designed approach developed cooperatively with system partners and community bodies working with under-represented groups utilising a multi-faceted and place-based approach.
Active Reach Abingdon saw us working with multi-sector organisations including The Abingdon DAMASCUS Youth Project, Vale of White Horse District Council, Oxfordshire Adult Learning and Sovereign Housing.
