We’re the Active Communities Team - powered by Active Nation, a charity on a mission to persuade the nation to be active!


Active Nation campaign nationally to increase participation in sport and exercise because regular physical activity can help to reduce and manage over 20 chronic diseases such as Type II Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease and some forms of Cancer.
