Active Bucks was a two-and-a-half-year programme developed and commissioned by Buckinghamshire County Council (BCC) that used a community engagement approach to get residents engaged in physical activity. Active Bucks looked to utilise the county’s existing partnerships while developing new partnerships to build upon the work being carried out.
This independent evaluation report draws together all relevant information from across the programme, from the initial engagement process to understand the needs of the residents through to delivery, sustainability, and return on investment. Different methods of data collection were used to demonstrate the impact of the Active Bucks programme. These are discussed in detail within this report. Finally, conclusions, learnings, and recommendations are presented to inform the development and implementation of future physical activity programmes
