Previous intervention increased PA from 22.5% in 2008 (Active People Survey 2/3 NI8 data) to 27.2% in 2013 (Active People Survey 6/7 NI8 data).
Started in June 2014, as a follow on from their 2008 'Get Active' Strategy
Why is the intervention needed? :swimmer::skin-tone-5:
Between 2012 and 2014, only 29.4% of adults in BANES complete 30 minutes of exercise 3 days a week, which is below reccomended guidelines (Sport England).
Although previous strategies saw an increase in PA levels, in 2013, only 27.2% of BANES residents reach PA guidelines (Active People 6/7 NI8 data).
2013 B&NES community survey found that the top barriers for not cycling (within 5 miles) or walking (within 2 miles) was due to Driver behaviour /road safety, Lack of on road cycle lanes or safe pavements and no barriers along dangerous paths.
