Situation

The Active People Survey demonstrates that too many people in Manchester do not meet recommended levels of physical activity. This combined with not eating correctly is resulting in increased obesity levels and associated health problems such as Type 2 diabetes on the rise (Diabetes UK). There is also a lack of activities available for young people to do in many locations of Manchester.

Solution

This project aims to develop, promote and deliver more classes for Manchester people to attend in the community. Manchester Lishi Arts engages with local authorities, community groups and local health agencies to ensure the group will partner other local strategies and joined up thinking. Lishi movement and dance from China provides an alternate approach to the usual mainstream services.
