As part of Liverpool’s ambition to become the most active core city in the UK by 2021, we’re offering Liverpool employers a package of free support to help get your workforce more active.

Research shows that introducing physical activity initiatives within the workplace can reduce absenteeism by up to 20%, in addition to improving teamwork, communication, morale and supporting Corporate Social Responsibility.

Pledge your organisation’s support to the Liverpool Active Workplaces campaign and you’ll have access to:

  • a Workplace Toolkit, that will provide information, signposting to sources of support and practical ideas that can be implemented within your workplace
  • free staff training places on the Physical Activity Champion training course, which will help your employees to engage their colleagues in physical activity initiatives
  • a small grants programme to apply for funding to pilot physical activity initiatives in your workplace
  • a mass participation step challenge taking place in January 2017, where employees can set their own step targets and count their steps towards their organisation’s total – who can be the most active workplace in Liverpool?

For further information about the Liverpool Active Workplaces programme please contact Danny Woodworth on or call 077300 28773.
