      My name is Chris Duncan and I work for a leisure and community provider called Everyone Active, who manage over 220 community leisure facilities across 60+ local authority areas. My role is Regional Community Wellbeing Manager and I’m passionate about supporting our communities identify opportunities to be more active and healthy.

      I currently sit on our national community wellbeing board and currently leading on social prescribing projects. In West Lindsey we have supported the West Lindsey VCS by providing concessionary activities at the local leisure centre, and providing free spaces for the link workers to undertake drop in clinics and consultations.
      The above has led to further opportunities working with community groups to utilise leisure facility spaces and change the perception of leisure facilities into more community lifestyle hubs.

      I’m keen to continue this work and learn from other localities on how we as an organisation can support social prescribing services and more importantly the communities that rely on these services.

      Many thanks

      Regional Community Wellbeing Manager, Everyone Active

      Hi Chris

      Great to read this post – Everyone Active has quite a presence in Norfolk so it would be good to make contact and look at how we we can collaborate, especially as we have the Norfolk & Waveney exercise referral programme in development currently and in light of the call for the government to back SP in the leisure/fitness industry.

      Kind regards

      Anna

      Good afternoon Anna

      Apologies for the delay, I’m new to the forum so have only just picked this up! I was wondering if you could email on chrisduncan@everyoneactive.com. I can then discuss and forward this onto a colleague who maybe able to health with the North Norfolk Leisure Contract and how we can help.

      As a group we are looking at how we can facilitate this across all areas and is a very exciting time as we are very keen to support our communities with these types of social wellbeing needs.

      Thanks Anna and look forward to hearing from you.

      Chris Duncan
