Sport England released the latest active lives survey results on the 29th April that showed the impact of Covid-19 on physical activity.
The initial findings showed that in the period between November 2019 and November 2020, 68.9% of adults in Greater Manchester were moving for more than 30 minutes a week (Sport England’s Active and Fairly Active measures). This is a significant decrease with 98,000 less adults doing more than 30 minutes of physical activity a week from the survey 12 months ago and 19,000 less than when the survey began in 2015-16.
We’ve now had more localised data through from Sport England and the team have pulled together the following pages to help explain the Greater Manchester data.

If you have questions about any of the data please email: [email protected].
Next week (w/c 25th Oct) GreaterSport are having a focus through their comms on GM workplace wellbeing and movement’s role within that and are encouraging partners to join them.
To help reduce the negative impact of COVID-19 and the widening of the inequalities on active lives Sport England announced The Tackling Inequalities Fund in June 2020.
