Towards an Active Derbyshire: Derbyshire Physical Activity and Sport Strategy 2016 – 2021

An active life with regular engagement in physical activity, sport, volunteering or coaching can have a hugely beneficial impact on people's lives, local communities and Derbyshire as a whole.

Towards an Active Derbyshire seeks to achieve the vision of more people in Derbyshire engaged in physical activity and sport, with the ambition of engaging an additional 50,000 people in active lives by 2021.

We are seeking a cultural transformation to 'turn the tide' of inactivity by providing choice, motivation and support in a co-ordinated way to change the behaviour of inactive groups by engaging them in physical activity and sport.
