Increase the range of opportunities to be active across Black Country communities, ensuring they are inclusive, attainable and support stronger, better connected, resilient communities

Communities represents one of the key areas of focus for Active Black Country and it's partners. Over the next 2 years, Active Black Country will:

  1. Ensure the voice of local Black Country communities sit at the heart of everything we do through high quality engagement and creation of local community activity champions.
  2. Improve access and connectivity across local communities and organisations to get people active.
  3. Identify a breadth of opportunities to be active, move more and play sport ensuring they are inclusive and welcoming - based on the needs of those who currently are not active or included.
