Geographical remit: 


Active Cheshire is the lead body for physical activity and sport in Cheshire & Warrington. Since 1989 the organisation has been working across the sub-region to improve the provision of sport and physical activity opportunities. Since 2014 Active Cheshire has focused on changing behaviours to encourage embedding physical activity into everyday life.

As an organisation Active Cheshire works across the whole of the market partnering with a diverse range of organisations ensuring a positive impact in all walks of life; ensuring people can get active at home, school, in the workplace and everywhere in between.

We want to make physical activity accessible to all by changing the way people think, by providing opportunities and helping people realise that any physical activity, no matter how small, is a success.

We help people take small steps to have a big impact on their quality of life.


As the lead body for physical activity and sport in Cheshire and Warrington, it is our job to engage, educate, enable, inspire and influence the local community as well as a wide range of organisations, stakeholders and partners locally, nationally and even globally to change.

We work to a Blueprint to tackle physical inactivity that has been inspired by a local MOVEment group; co-produced by a dedicated task force and cross-sector partners.  The Blueprint document sets out a whole system approach to tackling physical activity and targets 5 key pillars –  Active Design, Active Kids, Active Workplace, Active Minds, and Activators.
