Manchester Local Pilot Launch

Date & Time of Event: 
25 February, 2021 - 13:30 to 15:15

Greater Manchester was selected as one of 12 Local Delivery Pilots by Sport England in December 2017 following a competitive 12-month application process.

The pilot endeavours to increase and remodel engagement in health, wellbeing and exercise in Manchester by placing community at the heart of design and delivery. We are looking for local people who are interested in and passionate about the health and wellbeing of their community to shape and lead a new innovative programme.
