ACTIVE 10

active 10 1

London Borough of Ealing is promoting the Active 10 drive to encourage adults to get more active. The drive aims to get people walking briskly every day in bursts of ten minutes or more.

Just ten continuous minutes of brisk walking every day gets the heart pumping and can make you feel better, more energetic and improve your mood. Over time, it can lower the risk of serious illnesses like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Our Partner Organisations

Acton Community Forum (ACF) work with partners across the borough to support community projects and events.
