Active Leicester Strategy

Our new Active Leicester Strategy explains the importance of exercise in getting and staying as healthy as we can and details how we will work together across the city to help increase levels of physical activity.

Active Leicester – Turning the Tide on Inactivity is a five-year strategy for Leicester aiming to ensure the city benefits from a healthier, happier, more prosperous population.

Leicester has a rich sports heritage but low levels of physical activity, and we want to ‘turn the tide’ and increase physical activity levels in all parts of the city.

This strategy demonstrates the importance of being physically active, and shows how we, as a city, can have better health, social connections, and community cohesion through physical activity.

It offers a blueprint and toolkit for organisations to increase physical activity opportunities for all, but specifically those who are currently inactive.
