Signposting to policy, evidence and tools: Physical Activity

Are you working to promote physical activity through community-led projects in London? In this section of the site we signpost you to relevant policies, strategies, evidence and tools.

What is Well London doing to promote physical activity?

Through the programme, we are working to promote physical activity principally through our project Activate London. Activate London is training and supporting local people to act as 'peer activators'.

This involves behaviour change and activity leadership training that enables members of the community themselves to develop a broad range of physical activities using local community facilities. The project is coordinated by Central YMCA.
