Minutes:

A representative of the Director of Public Health submitted a report (copies of which had been circulated) which provided the final update on the refreshed ONE Stockport Active Communities Strategy following the initial presentation to the Board in November 2021

 

The following comments were made/issues raised:-

 

·         Welcomed the accessibility of the strategy to empower residents to be more active throughout their normal day. In response, it was stated that the strategy distinguished between being active and doing activity and that the communications plan was vital to delivering messaging around supporting people to be active by reducing their sedentary behaviour to mitigate risk factors to their health, then if an individual wanted to do activity by going through a gym for example this could be added.

 

·         It was commented that people were much more likely to be active if they felt supportive and welcomed the focus on enabling residents.

 

·         Recognised the link between activity and mental health and wellbeing, and the responsibility of the large public employers to support the strategy starting with setting an example through their approach to staff.

 

·         Whether opportunities were being explored to work with other initiatives such as smoking cessation to help an individual improve their overall health. In response, it was advised that a whole system approach would be key to delivery as opposed to in isolation. An example of this partnership work was the project with Age UK which focussed on isolation, the service was now exploring ways to develop this project to include activity.

 

·         Recognised the ambition targets outlined within the strategy and welcomed the timescale that had been set for these to be achieved.

 

·         Highlighted the messaging during the initial lockdown which encouraged one hour worth of exercise per day which had created a misconception amongst children and adults. The strategy demonstrated a shift towards being more active and instead, exercising every hour.

 

·         The importance of a whole system, whole family approach for the strategy to produce tangible outcomes.

 

·         Whether the strategy could be a rolling programme. In response, it was stated that the implementation plan was the live part of the strategy and the action research plan would review progress against the priorities on an annual basis and ensure continued development.

 

RESOLVED – That the report be noted and the continuation of a whole systems methodology for the ONE Stockport Active Communities Strategy 2022-2030 be endorsed.
