Active Together (formerly Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport) is a partnership organisation working to help communities in Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland get moving a little more.

This is an exciting opportunity for a Development Officer who would like to support us to work with communities, organisations and partners to deliver our Physical Activity Framework and support our vision of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland: a place where physical activity is part of daily life, leading to people living healthier and happier lives.

National guidelines advise that physical activity promotion for inactive people with a range of long term conditions and physical activity brief advice in healthcare is one of the top seven 'best buys' for getting a population active.  This post will support us to focus on increasing opportunities to embed physical activity advice and guidance into health care settings and amongst health care professionals, to both increase activity levels and improve the health and wellbeing of our residents.

Examples of projects (although not a definitive list):

- Developing a targeted approach to raise physical activity in low participating groups and settings.
- Raise awareness of the health and wellbeing benefits of physical activity to health professionals/settings and communities.
- Supporting health care professionals and health groups to embed physical activity into their settings/programmes/policies and have active conversations with patients (eg. work with GP Surgeries, Patient Participation Groups, Pharmacies).
- Support the development and delivery of relevant local and national physical activity campaigns/programes to reduce inactivity and increase participation (with a focus on active medicine related campaigns/projects and landing these in health care settings eg. Pharmacies, GP Surgeries).
- Encouraging everyone to embed regular, informal physical activity opportunities into their daily lives.
