50,000 more people more active by 2020

The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Physical Activity Strategy was developed jointly between Cornwall Council Public Health and Cornwall Sports Partnership, with input from a wide range of stakeholders and key partners. Its primary aim is to reduce the number of people who are inactive (less than 30 minutes activity per week) and increase the number of people meeting Chief Medical Officer guidelines for good health (minimum 150 minutes per week). Read the full Physical Activity Strategy below.

Summit 2016 - Increasing physical activity is everybody's business - the strategy has been formally endorsed by the Health & Wellbeing Board and was launched at the first CIOS Physical Activity Summit in November 2016. The summit focused on the need for a wide ranging approach to this stubborn problem with more than 100 multi-agency partners coming together to discuss the ambitions of the strategy and the contribution they could make.

Summit 2017 - from everybody's business to business critical - Increasing levels of physical activity has huge potential to impact on a number of outcomes that are identified as important by the people of Cornwall.
That was the verdict of 150 delegates from a wide range of organisations who joined senior leaders in St Austell a year after first launching the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Physical Activity Strategy. The summit heard how increases in physical activity can deliver results beyond the established physical and mental benefits including improvements in community cohesion, reduced crime and anti-social behavior and improved health services through reduced demand and cost savings.
