Sport England has awarded Greater Manchester £10m National Lottery funding, having chosen the region as a pilot area to make getting active even easier.
This huge investment to get 75% of people in Greater Manchester to move more in their daily lives was announced when the Greater Manchester Heath and Care Board met at Trafford Town Hall on Friday 13 July. Greater Manchester is one of 12 places chosen by Sport England to work with on a new approach to build healthier, more active communities across England.
Details of how all ten areas of Greater Manchester can access funding will be made available next week. Money will be shared to help people move more and get fit, building on momentum from last summer’s launch of Greater Manchester Moving; the area’s ambitious plan to get everybody moving.
