Public health is about helping people to stay healthy and protect them from threats to their health. The Council's Public Health service looks at the health status of everyone in the borough and helps plan the service provision that will be needed:
- To keep as many people healthy and active as possible, preferably out of hospital
- Ensure they live long and healthy lives.
Through sport the StreetGames Network changes lives, changes sport and changes communities. The StreetGames charity was set up by half a dozen organizers of neighbourhood sports projects. In 2005 they came together to make sport more widely available for disadvantaged young people and to maximize the power of sport to change young lives and to change disadvantaged communities. StreetGames promotes Doorstep Sport – that is sport in disadvantaged communities that takes place at the right time, at the right place, in the right style and at the right price.
YMCA is the largest and the oldest charity working with young people in the world. Across England there are 114 YMCAs. Each one is a thriving and active community. A community that is transforming lives.
We’re called Everyone Active for a reason – we have built a strong reputation for delivering well-managed leisure facilities, which have successfully proven to encourage everyone to be more active.
