Somerset Physical Activity and Sports Strategy – Addressing Health Inequalities Workshop

Join our Big Conversation

What would make it easier and more appealing to be physically active, whatever your age here in Somerset? SASP and our partners have launched the big on line conversation to find out. Join in at a time to suit you until Friday 17th September 2021.

Being active is so important for our physical and mental fitness, never more so than during a pandemic. In Somerset we still have nearly a quarter of our adult population who are inactive and activity levels for children and young people have also dropped significantly over the past year. Lack of confidence, time pressures, ill health plus a thousand other things can make the decision to be active harder for some than others. How can we as individuals and our organisations make decisions easier for people to embed being active as a way of life. We want to hear your thoughts and ideas on how we improve the health and happiness of all of us in Somerset.

We are using padlet to capture all your responses, but also have 3 dedicated virtual sessions to capture your discussions and to give you an opportunity to share your thoughts, ideas and opinions with us.

We are holding 3 virtual consultation sessions:

Somerset Physical Activity and Sports Strategy – Community Sport and Leisure Providers Workshop - Mon 13th Sept

Somerset Physical Activity and Sports Strategy – Children and Young People Workshop - Wed 15th Sept

Somerset Physical Activity and Sports Strategy – Addressing Health Inequalities Workshop - Mon 20th Sept

This workshop aims to explore how the new strategy could go further in supporting efforts to reduce health inequalities across Somerset. It will consider the role that sport and physical activity could play in improving individual's mental health and wellbeing. It will explore how we could address inactivity amongst those people with health conditions, who have a disability, or are aged 55 plus. It will then seek to identify the range of localised interventions that could reduce levels of inactivity and enhance recovery, pre-habilitation and rehabilitation. It will be particularly relevant to those working across the health and social care sectors.

Please join us in these discussions or otherwise leave your responses through our online platform padlet here
