What is Get Active Exeter?

Get Active Exeter is an ambitious vision to make Exeter the most active city in the South West by 2018. It aims to change the behaviour of working aged adults and their families to embed physical activity into daily routines. The programme develops new, and promotes existing activities in workplaces and communities that  lead to a healthy lifestyle. The bottom line.... we will be:

  1. creating a public campaign that gets people more active
  2. develops 90 different Get Active Exeter projects across the city
  3. gets more than 2000 new people active on a regular basis
  4. engages 36 city employers to support staff to become more active in their daily routines
  5. establishes an ‘Exeter Healthy Schools’ network, promoting active lifestyles to pupils and parents
