Fighting inactivity, saving lives.
Active Oxfordshire is here to help everyone across the county get active, get healthy and change their lives. Our key priorities, known as our "Three Pillars", are Healthy Active Children; Healthy Place Shaping and Healthy for Life.
Active Oxfordshire acts as a backbone organisation within the local third sector, bringing together local charities, schools, local authorities, public health organisations and many more to fight inactivity and tackle inequality – TOGETHER.
Will you join us?
If you would like to be part of our journey fighting inactivity and tackling inequality, we'd be delighted to start a conversation. Here's how you can get involved:
Healthy Active Children:
- Work with us to promote the benefits of activity to those who can influence change in communities
- Share our information and resources to help us reach children and young people in the greatest need
- If your organisation helps children and young people to get more active, we'd love to work with you to achieve mutual outcomes
For more information, please contact Josh Lenthall
Healthy Place Shaping:
- We would like to hear from community groups, charities or third-sector organisations that wish to extend current offers to include sport or physical activity.
- Please get in touch if you're a property developer, or other party interested in creating environments that support active travel, active play or healthier neighbourhoods.
- We are keen to start conversations with groups looking to make the most of local community assets to support people's health and well-being.
For more information, please contact Matt Roebuck
Healthy for Life:
- Work with us to support the development of a Physical Activity pathway for patients at risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), or with Long Term Health Conditions (LTHCs)
- Join our cross-sector approach to provide activity opportunities for older people
- Work with us to provide physical activity pathways to improve health outcomes, reduce health inequalities and empower communities.
For more information, please contact Annie Holden
- We are particularly keen to hear from people who may be facing barriers to getting active, to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to have their voice heard. If your organisation could help identify people who might like to get involved, we'd be delighted to discuss further.
