Turning the tide on physical inactivity

Active Lincolnshire is one of six Active Partnerships that operate along the North East coast of England, stretching from Gibraltar Point in Lincolnshire all the way to the Scottish borders. Along with Active Lincolnshire, these partners include Rise, County Durham Sport, Tees Valley Sport, North Yorkshire Sport and Active Humber.

As a region, the coastal areas of the North East face significantly worse health inequalities than the majority of the country, compounded by communities that are less likely to be physically active.

The report outlines the very real problems we face and seeks support from bodies, specifically Sport England, to help us address the low physical activity rates we face in these communities.
