Group of people playing boccia, walking towards the ballsOn Wednesday 6 December Active Kent & Medway hosted a Tackling Inequalities Networking Event at Prince Arthur Road Indoor Bowls Club in Gillingham. The event was an opportunity for clubs and local organisations to come together to share experiences and learnings to help close the inequalities gap in sport and physical activity for specific community groups. Many thanks to everyone who attended the event.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Mike and all the volunteers at the Bowls Club for their warm welcome and for allowing attendees to have a go at indoor bowls and Boccia. It broke up the morning perfectly and generated lots of laughter and conversation.

Move Together Strategy

The four year strategy for sport and physical activity across Kent and Medway was launched in 2023. Coordinated by Active Kent & Medway, it sets out how we can all work together to support those who are already active, as well as tackling the inequalities that currently prevent some from enjoying the benefits that moving more can bring to our physical and mental wellbeing.
