We’re delighted to announce that Active Kent and Medway’s 2023 Conference will take place on Wednesday 18 October 2023, 9:30am – 3:30pm, at the Kent Event Centre, Detling.

Following the launch of Move Together, the new four year county-wide strategy for sport and physical activity, this FREE conference will focus on how we can all work together to support those who are already active, as well as tackling the inequalities that currently prevent some of us from enjoying the benefits that moving more in our everyday lives can bring to our physical and mental wellbeing.

Bookings are now closed for this popular annual event. For those of you who have booked, please scroll down and select your choice of briefing sessions via the link below.

Sharing Stories Q&A Sessions

You will hear from representatives from across the sport and physical activity sector as they take part in two Q&A panel sessions with conference host Rob Smith, former BBC South East presenter.

Panel 1 – Hear how a desire to invest in the health and physical activity levels of Gravesham residents led to a wide range of organisations coming together to provide sport and physical activity opportunities for the local community. Guest speakers from Gravesham Borough Council, The Grand Healthy Living Centre, a Ukrainian family group, Mencap and Sport on your Doorstep.

Panel 2Learn how local sport and physical activity providers are helping older adults and people with long term health conditions to Move Together. Representatives from NBE fitness, tm active and TKO Boxing club will share how their different approaches are challenging the perceptions of being active with a long term health condition or disability.
