Gateshead Council helped set up a sporting club that provides sports training to children and adults with disabilities. There’s a strong partnership with Newcastle United. One athlete won two gold medals at the 2019 Special Olympics World Games.
In Coventry, the Council has made it easier for people to know how far they are running or walking. They use 100 meter markers throughout their 45 parks.
Social prescribing in Oldham more than halved the need for GP appointments and slashed A&E attendance.
Barking and Dagenham has one of the largest learn to swim programmes in the country. And a new Olympic sized pool is providing even more opportunities for local people to get fit.
