Thank you very much for taking part in this survey

tmactive150 is our community programme, designed to encourage and help local people achieve 150 minutes of moderate activity per week. The programme is part of our outreach work, addressing issues and barriers that may prevent local people from participating and enjoying physical activity. We want physical activity to be enjoyed by everyone.

At the moment, our Health & Wellbeing team are looking at how we can re-introduce sessions with Covid safety measures in place. Your involvement is extremely helpful for us to understand local people's attitudes, barriers and behaviours towards physical activity during the Covid-19 pandemic and government imposed lockdown.
Your responses will be used to help us develop our activity programme and support our communities in accessing physical activity opportunities 2021.
