The Medway Physical Activity Alliance was formed in 2021 to help improve physical activity levels for local residents. 

The alliance sits alongside the Medway Food Partnership and Infant Feeding Network. These form part of the Medway Healthy Weight Network, which uses a whole systems approach to tackle obesity and improve the health and wellbeing of everyone who lives and works in Medway.


The alliance aims to connect key stakeholders in Medway and encourage everyone to pull together to promote the benefits of physical activity.

The alliance offers a networking opportunity, bringing together everyone who has anything to do with physical activity into the same room. It's a place to meet like-minded professionals who are passionate about helping residents in Medway to become more active and live healthier lifestyles.

Alliance priority 2024 to 2025

To achieve our vision and improve activity levels in the long term, we have set an alliance priority for the future. This is to grow the number of organisations participating in the physical activity alliance, promoting each other's opportunities for residents to become more active and collectively promoting the benefits of regular movement.

Alliance networking meetings

The alliance meets 3 times a year, with a mixture of face-to-face and online meetings.

We have an open and casual structure, using a ‘business over breakfast approach’. This encourages everyone to share best practice and work with other alliance members to bring about positive change through increasing local physical activity opportunities for those most in need.

Members also have a chance to present and speak about the good work they are doing in a ‘5 minute meet the member’ slot. This allows members to share best practices and learn from each other to create a more inclusive and active environment in Medway.


Our membership base is growing fast and we now have over 270 members, including:

  • local physical activity providers
  • local council staff
  • funding providers
  • local businesses and organisations
  • clinicians (primary and secondary care)
  • charities
  • volunteer organisations.

Everyday Active

The Everyday Active website is the go to website for everything physical activity-related in Kent and Medway. 

The website acts as a community notice board for residents to visit and browse the many activities on offer. It's also an opportunity for providers to promote their activities to a large audience. The range of activities on offer are either low cost or free and cater for all ages and abilities.  

Among others, we have our own Medway Community page to cater for residents living and working in Medway.

Explore Medway

Explore Medway is an online guide to getting outside and experiencing the best of Medway’s outdoor spaces including lakes, rivers, countryside and woodland.
