• Moving Together in County Durham Consultation

    Moving Together in County Durham Consultation

    Following conversations with people to find out what would help them be more active, Durham County Council are now consulting on a new strategy called the Moving Together in County Durham.

    The draft strategy sets out a joint plan to help everyone in County Durham to move more. It lists the benefits of moving more at each stage of life, as well and the positive impact it has on:

    • people’s physical wellbeing
    • people’s mental wellbeing
    • people’s personal development
    • people’s social lives
    • the local economy
    • the environment

    It also identifies four priority action areas that will help to make a difference:

    • Children and Young People – creating opportunities for increased movement
    • Inclusive Communities – reaching out to those who will benefit the most
    • Active Environments – making sure we can easily use our outdoors to move more
    • Health and Social Care Settings – making sure that those in care are supported to be active

    The draft action plan can be found here and the draft strategy can be found here.

    Before the draft strategy is adopted, Durham County Council would like to hear your views or final comments. Please visit the website to find out more.
