What We Do

Improving lives through the power of physical activity

We are committed to delivering a local system-wide approach through Let’s Move Lincolnshire the countywide strategy for physical activity - recognising the multiple stakeholders, environmental, policy, cultural, societal and organisational influences that impact peoples’ ability to be active. We recognise that one size does not fit all and every place within Lincolnshire is not the same, where people are key to everything we do, we are committed to delivering on universal sector-wide goals as well as striving towards a place-based approach that will have relevant and meaningful impact for local communities.

By working alongside our partners to tackle the barriers to physical activity facing the population of Lincolnshire, we embrace our position as a leader and lean on our extensive expertise, data, insight, partner relationships, networks and knowledge to do so.

Our Strategic Goals
