Move Together webinar: working together to support our vulnerable communities
Thank you to everyone who attended our Move Together webinar on Tuesday 6th July. We were delighted to welcome over 70 attendees from multiple sectors across Oxfordshire, and look forward to working together to support our vulnerable communities.
Move Together is a new county-wide pathway into physical activity. It will support people who have been shielding as a result of COVID-19, as well as people with long term health conditions but will help to reduce isolation and loneliness too. It is a supportive pathway, personalised to each individual based on their specific needs, provided by physical activity specialists.
Active Oxfordshire is co-ordinating Move Together, in collaboration with the District Councils who are providing the local place-based expertise to support individuals into appropriate activity and help them move more, to improve their health. Increasing physical activity levels is essential for Oxfordshire's COVID-19 recovery and to reduce the already excessive demand on health and social care.
