Local Communities

Active Devon works with local community and voluntary groups all over Devon in exciting and innovative ways

We know that active lifestyles bring huge benefits to individuals and they are also an important part of making Devon’s communities even better places to live.

Our work with communities starts by listening to, and seeking to understand the people we aim to support. To help us do this, our Active Devon Development Team are embedded within local communities around Devon.

With local partners, groups and individuals we help to establish new opportunities or develop existing provision, so that more people can choose activity as part of their everyday lifestyle.

Our work in Action

Following investment from Sport England, “Get Active Exeter” seeks to make Exeter the most active city in the South West by 2018. The programme develops new, and promotes existing activities in workplaces and communities that  lead to a healthy lifestyle. We are:

  1. Developing 90 different Get Active Exeter projects across the city
  2. Getting more than 2000 new people active on a regular basis
  3. Engaging 36 city employers to support staff to become more active in their daily routines
  4. Creating a public campaign that connects and inspires people to think positively about getting active
