A word from our Chief Executive, Sadie Mason OBE

With central to local government funding ever diminishing, health concerns rising and an NHS under pressure, there is no greater imperative for organisations and communities in Sussex than to seek more local and tailored responses to our health and wellbeing challenges. Inactivity continues to be a significant contributor to long term illness/disease and a hence a major cost consumer of primary care and other support services. Our Active Sussex Network event will offer delegates a different perspective on how these challenges have been addressed in other localities, along with some insights and tips into potential ways of funding programmes aimed at tackling inactivity. With some exciting keynote speakers and workshops, it is an event not to be missed.

We’re looking forward to seeing you on 22nd February!
