Let's Move Lincolnshire

Our strategy to tackle the challenge of inactivity. Find out more

About us

Active Lincolnshire is committed to providing opportunities for everyone in Lincolnshire to be active every day. We work with partners to address inequalities and inactivity, responding to the needs of people and places.

What we do

As advocates for the positive power that physical activity has on everyone’s lives, we work in partnership to improve understanding, influence change, and tackle the challenge of inactivity.

Knowledge Hub

Our Knowledge Hub is the core of our website. Here you’ll find our guidance, advice, insight and support in all areas of physical activity and sport.

Performance Improvement

“Every time we work with Active Lincolnshire, we feel that we ‘do good’.”

  • Performance management framework

    Performance management framework

    As we increasingly look to understand the impact of our work, how we learn and share our learnings, and how we develop our approach based on these learnings, it is important for us to take the time to understand, reflect and develop the organisation. While we monitor, measure and evaluate all of our work, it is not always possible, or relevant, to count outputs.

    One of the ways we understand our impact is through Active Lincolnshire’s participation in Quest, the performance management framework provided by Sport England.

    Quest provides a framework, space and expertise to undertake regular reviews of the impact Active Lincolnshire has against local and national priorities. In 2021, Active Lincolnshire undertook a Quest learning process that built on our full performance management improvement framework review in 2019. This learning process enabled us to explore the impact of the delivery of our primary role – which is to understand and influence local systems to tackle the challenge of inactivity.

    The process included two workshops facilitated by a Quest assessor that included stakeholders, the team, our trustees, and leaders of other Active Partnerships – Hayley Lever, CEO of Greater Sport, Jason Fergus, Director of Active Essex, and Graeme Sinott from the Active Partnerships national team.

    Outcomes, actions and learning from the 2021 Quest improvement workshop:

    • The concept of Let’s Move Lincolnshire remains valid and supported by partners
    • The movement needs to be reinvigorated and to an extent redefined in light of COVID-19, the Uniting the Movement national strategy and Active Lincolnshire’s new leadership and direction
    • Priorities for Let’s Move include the development of the narrative, strengthening stakeholder engagement and wider leadership and purpose
    • There is an opportunity to strengthen links with healthcare system partners to drive forward a system change approach
    • Active Lincolnshire can further develop and evidence our learning from programmes and specifically tackling inequalities
