Annual Report of the Director of Public Health

This report explains how our Public Health team have worked to get more Richmond residents physically active in 2022/23. This is in response to increased levels of physical inactivity, sedentary behaviour, isolation and loneliness caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The report includes details of:

  • Collaboration with our Voluntary Sector and Partnerships Team
  • Setting up the Active Richmond Fund - a grant for community organisations to help residents become more active 
  • Case studies where residents explain how they became more active 
  • Programmes and initiatives run by local groups, including Voices of Hope and TAG Youth Club

The report is titled, 'Ready to get active in Richmond. But where to go, what to do'. This is based on a comment made by a local resident who recovered from a serious illness before participating in an activity through the Active Richmond Fund.
