For change to happen, we need to take people on the journey with us.
To support the work across Doncaster to increase levels of participation in physical activity and sport, the Get Doncaster Moving team have worked with partners to deliver resident focused communication campaigns.
The team also support other partner campaigns across Doncaster which aim to have a positive impact on physical activity levels, as well as the campaigns delivered by our national partners, Sport England.
Our campaign to #GetDoncasterMoving
Throughout 2021, Get Doncaster Moving campaign work has focussed heavily on encouraging residents to move more by walking in their local communities. There has also been a focus on cycling, and support services available in Doncaster to encourage people to give cycling a try.
The campaign work has shared the stories of local residents, who are positive about the changes that moving more has had on their lives, using their own words and experiences to encourage and motivate others.
Examples of our most recent campaign work with local residents can be found below. You can find all of our campaign videos on our You Tube channel.
To compliment this work, the Get Doncaster Moving team worked in partnership with Doncaster Mumbler to provide Doncaster's children and young families opportunities to take part in free, fun outdoor trails throughout the school holidays, in various locations across the borough.
Leaflets were created and sent to households within three of our target areas of Balby, Denaby and Stainforth, featuring local people and stories, to encourage others to be more active in their local area:
