Informed by substantial local insight and engagement, alongside co-production from local communities and the latest guidance and evidence, the Salford Physical Activity Framework is in the process of being refreshed and updated.
This new version of the framework and its associated themed action plans will direct our efforts to raise physical activity levels across the life course in Salford, with a focus on underserved communities and children and young people as part of the overall prevention agenda to reduce health inequalities and build back a fairer, greener and healthier Salford as we recover from COVID-19.
To create lasting change, this framework will be built on social inclusion and building activity in to our everyday lives i.e. ‘Active by Design’. It will support our city’s push to reduce carbon, battle climate change and improve air quality through the walking and cycling agenda and work in other ways to make being physically active the social norm. Its aim will be to ensure that physical activity cuts across and contributes to all policies within Salford across the system.
By facilitating, enabling and encouraging people within our city to be more physically active, with a strong focus on inequalities, we will be contributing to achieving our city strategic priorities contained within the Great Eight, Locality Plan and the overarching regional strategies the GM Population Health Plan and GM Moving in our efforts to become a more equal ‘Marmot’ City.
