Movement with Communities – Our Work in Teignbridge

We are committed to working with partners, to achieve positive impact for people’s lives, in local places where multiple inequalities exist. We can do this by connecting, advocating and enabling people to move more.

Working Together to Achieve Systemic Change

By working together, we can overcome more challenges and find new ways to help people in the community be active.

Our Partnerships team are our community-based leads in designated localities across the county. They work together with local and national partners, organisations, groups, volunteers and activity providers. The community-based lead for Teignbridge is Hannah Worth. You can contact Hannah by emailing: Hannah.Worth@activedevon.org.

We also have two members of our team who are actively engaging with local clubs and organisations across Devon, to explore ways they can provide support on welfare and safeguarding best practice. If you are part of a club or organisation and would like to have a chat to see how they can help you, please get in touch. Nick Cull is the contact for Teignbridge, and you can connect with him by emailing: Nick.Cull@activedevon.org.

Our Work in Teignbridge

  • We are working with Be Buckfastleigh and other rural agencies such as Devon Communities Together to help people living in more rural areas access physical activity offers. An example of this in action has been our work to join up the efforts between community run outdoor swimming pools, of which Teignbridge has seven, to try and ensure their survival as a result of the pandemic and rising energy costs.
