Physical Activity in Derbyshire Update pdf icon PDF 238 KB


Derbyshire County Council (DCC) had a long tradition of investing in physical activity and had worked with a range of partners including Active Derbyshire, Shift and the district and borough councils to deliver a range of interventions aimed at reducing inactivity levels.


The currentphysical activitysystem includeda successfulJog Derbyshire programme delivered by Shift, an exercise by referral scheme that was delivered through district and borough councils and Walk Derbyshire. These programmes were funded through DCC Public HealthGrants.


Derbyshire’s new physical activity strategy, ‘Making our Move’, was launched in October 2021, and aimed to address inequalities and empower everyone to be active in a way that works for them. The strategy set out an approach that would help focus the efforts and resources to empower communities and unlock their potential.


The strategyoutlined thatmost physicalactivity tookplace outdoor,within 20 minutes of people’s homes, and that all population groups walk more than they do any other type of activity whether to keep fit, for leisure or for travel. There was an opportunity to further integrate the physical activity provision across the county and a new commissioning model was in development which would form part of the whole system approach to physical activity. This would ensure that commissioned services contributed to strategic objectives, namely increasing rates of physical activity and reducing rates of inactivity.


RESOLVED to (1) engage in the work of developing a whole system approach to physical activity; and (2) support the Walk Derbyshire programme and its implementation.
