Active Durham will demonstrate success by achieving an increase in physical activity levels and decreasing inactivity levels through a number of measures. We will also provide support and advice to partners on evaluating the success of their work.
Data will be gathered through a range of methods using the same measure to ensure accurate and consistent reporting.
Active Durham will also explore the use of new technology to gather physical activity data in supporting the outcome.
The Active Durham partners will work towards the following numerical targets by 2021:
