United by an ambition to get more people active across Greater Manchester, GM Active last month launched their ‘We Move As One’ strategy. It will focus on helping people across Greater Manchester live healthy, happy, and longer lives.

GM Active is a collective of 12 leisure and community organisations across Greater Manchester. 

Working in response to the GM Moving in Action strategy, they have a shared, simple objective – to get more people physically active and improve the health and wellbeing of our communities.

Andy King, Chair of GM Active, says: “Our shared approach gives us real opportunity to bring about change. We are a unique combination of organisations and people – pioneers in the leisure sector. By collaborating, we have a greater ‘real life’ impact for the people of Greater Manchester.

“Working in response to the GM Moving in Action strategy, we have created a new ‘We Move As One’ strategy, which will underpin our current success with greater strategic direction and commercial sustainability.”

Their main purpose is to help people across Greater Manchester live healthy, happy, and longer lives and their strategy details four main aims:

  1. Encourage active lives for all and help to reduce health inequalities
  2. Support and drive effective system wide collaboration with key partners across Greater Manchester.
  3. Strengthen our resilience to ensure long-term sustainability.
  4. Embed environmental sustainability and support the region’s ambition to be carbon-neutral by 2038.
