Health and Wellbeing - Active Norfolk

New Activity Finder website for Norfolk launches to help people find exercise opportunities that suit them

Active Norfolk is the Active Partnership for Norfolk, one of a network of 43 Active Partnerships created by Sport England. They are hosted by Norfolk County Council.

Active Norfolk has recently launched a new activity finder platform called Every Move.  The new platform now has its own website to ensure users who are looking to find exercise opportunities in their areas have just one place to look.

The website works by activity providers, sports clubs, and informal activity groups across the county registering an account and then using the site to list details of their activity sessions including times, locations, dates, facilities, and accessibility provision. Providers and clubs can also upload images of their sessions and detailed descriptions so people looking to start a new form of activity can gain as much information ahead of attending the sessions as possible.

The launch of the website has been timed to coincide with ‘peak season’ for physical activity as more people make resolutions to adopt healthier lifestyles through physical activity following the festive and new year periods.

Visit the site now and find new ways to get active at
