How can you help?

We want to know how we can support our community to get moving. You can help us understand your needs by responding to the survey below before Friday 31 December 2021.

We also want to hear from families with children. If this is you, visit our families page to share your feedback for yourself and your children.

We'll use your feedback to inform our 2-year Physical Activity Action Plan, which will guide all of our work in this space for the next 2 years.
