ukactive Strategic Partner Group
The Strategic Partner Group was formerly known as the ukactive Vanguard Group until 2014.
ukactive's Strategic Partner Group is a collection of member organisations who share ukactive's vision of getting more people, more active, more often.
They work closely with ukactive to develop policies and strategies that seek to combat the grave dangers of sedentary behaviour and promote the benefits of an active lifestyle.
The ukactive team in turn provides tailored consultancy to strategic partners designed to support their work in encouraging more people to live an active life. Being part of the Strategic Partner Group places organisations at the forefront of the active lifestyle sector by providing them with:
Bespoke strategic advice - The ukactive team offers the Strategic Partner Group advice on the current physical activity landscape and strategic support at a local and corporate level. Membership of the Group allows the team to support organisations on a tailored and specific basis to understand issues such as public funding, policy development, sponsorship and partnership opportunities - enabling partners to create more effective programmes, offers and initiatives that can get more people moving.
Unique insight - Partners are kept updated on the latest sector data and metrics, relevant developments in policy, people, processes and issues which affect the physical activity landscape. They are provided with a unique insight into the development of local, national, and European policy and developments in the market to support their forward planning and increase their understanding of future issues or opportunities as they strive to increase activity levels.
A representative voice - ukactive works with the Strategic Partner Group to develop the evidence base for physical activity and establish best practice on a range of issues from public health to workforce and skills development- at both a national and local level. ukactive also runs exclusive Strategic Partner Group events, including policy report launches, updates on the sector, anniversary events and networking opportunities. The committed, combined efforts of ukactive and its Strategic Partners are at the heart of the drive to consign the current inactivity pandemic to the history books.
