Physical activity for health

To ensure that we maximise the opportunities to embed physical activity into the daily lifes of all Londoners

We want to build a bridge between health, physical activity and sport.

In medical terms physical activity has been described as a wonder drug.

Regular physical activity can help to prevent and manage over 20 chronic conditions and diseases, many of which are on the rise and affecting people at an earlier age.

Lack of physical activity is costing the UK an estimated £7.4 billion a year, including £0.9 billion to the NHS alone.

Our approach to physical activity for health is very much based on building strategic bridges between the health and physical activity and sport communities, and supporting policy and strategy decision making that has long-term positive implications for the future health of London and its residents.

Funding Opportunities

We occasionally provide funding opportunities targeting physical activity for health focused projects in London.

Meet the Team

We speak at many events, conferences and industry round tables on the future of physical activity for health, as well as producing thought leadership articles to provide advice and challenges to the sector.
