Two experienced national figures in the field of wellbeing are to headline the 6th Most Active County annual stakeholder event.
The event, which will this year will focus on using sport and physical activity to address isolation and loneliness, brings partners together to improve understanding, share best practice and foster collaboration with the aim of better supporting people to become and remain socially engaged and involved through physical activity.
Experts Nancy Hey and Liam Hughes will bring a wealth of national strategic and practical insight and expertise on loneliness and isolation to Suffolk.
Hey established the world’s first centre for wellbeing – the What Works Centre for Wellbeing. The centre aims to understand what governments, business, communities and individuals can do to increase wellbeing. She is an experienced policy professional and coach who has worked with the UK’s top civil servants to introduce wellbeing into public policy in eight government departments.
Hughes has most recently been working with Sport England and the Chief Leisure Officers Association to help local partnerships position physical activity as a key element of health and wellbeing. He has also been supporting the Prevention at Scale Programme run by the Local Government Association (LGA) and Public Health England. For 5 years Hughes was the National Adviser for Healthy Communities at the LGA and a Senior Associate Fellow at the Warwick Business School. He was also a non-Executive Director at the Health Development Agency.
Taking place on the afternoon of Tuesday 22nd January at Wherstead Park, Ipswich, the event will also feature a range of informative workshops offering theoretical and practical examples of best practice both locally and nationally.
