Norfolk Physical Activity Forum
The next Norfolk Physical Activity Forum will be held on Wednesday the 11th of March 2020. The forum is held bi-annually with each forum focusing on a different agenda. The agenda for the next Physical Activity forum will be confirmed nearer to the time.
Funding support is provided by Norfolk County Council Public Health, and previous forums have brought together a range of partners with an interest in disability (Autumn 2019) long-term conditions (Spring 2019), social isolation (Autumn 2018), and mental health (Spring 2018). We are keen to have delegates from physical activity, health, well-being, community and social backgrounds present at these events to provide their perspective on how physical activity might be used to tackle a particular issue in Norfolk.
If you have not previously attended one of our forums and would like to be added to our distribution list, please email event organiser Rachel Cooke at Rachel.Cooke@activenorfolk.org.

Insight & Evaluation Officer
My role is to imbed insight and evaluation across Active Norfolk's work. My aim is to help us as an organisation learn more about what works, or doesn't, by understanding and applying existing evidence, as well as generating new understanding from increasing data collection and analysis in Norfolk. I intend to use the combined insight gained from this to inform the design, delivery and development of ours, and partners services by providing information that is relevant and accessible to the sector.
In my free time I like to cycle, run, and generally spend time outdoors.
