UKSPF project: North Wales – Active, Healthy and Happy

Funded by UK Government logo

Project lead: Actif North Wales

This project covers more than one local authority.

Project overview

Local people often hold the keys to unlocking long lasting, positive change within their communities. Our aim is to work at a local level to better understand the challenges and barriers people face to being active and in doing so having "good health and wellbeing".

We’ll test new ways of working that are:

  • community led
  • sustainable and innovative
  • supporting and empowering local people’s involvement in decision making
  • co-creating local solutions to help them to move more

Informed by health, wellbeing, and inequalities data, we’ll work in partnership with Local Authorities (LAs) to identify communities (two in each LA) that most need our help to enable levelling up around the health and wellbeing of the population.

Building a local picture of the individual and community assets, we'll engage with and bring key local people and partners together, empowering local leaders, developing joint plans to reduce inactivity levels and tackle social and health inequalities.

Project updates

March 2024

Actif North Wales have worked with the Council to finalise the appointments of two project Co-ordinators - one in partnership with Grŵp Cynefin/Hwb Dinbych and the second with Countryside Services. This will enable the project to grow capacity to work collaboratively with existing and new partners, whilst adding value to existing work streams in these areas.
