An Active Durham task group including partners from Durham University and County Durham Sport have developed a whole system approach which gathers evidence in order to make informed decisions on how to develop programmes and projects to increase physical activity in County Durham.
The approach can be used to map the supply, demand and needs of a sector of the community, for example women and girls. The capacity, capabilities, knowledge and skills and delivery methods are assessed. The evidence from this mapping leads to the ability to make informed decisions which will support the Active Durham vision and aims.
Active Durham would like to encourage organisations in the County to adopt this approach.
