Project overview

This NIHR ARC Wessex funded study aims to look at: 1) How many people can be reached with Active Lives (a website to support increased physical activity). 2) Whether we are able to reach people from different backgrounds (e.g. education level, ethnicity). 3) How individuals use the website and whether they report increases in activity over time. All this data will be captured online through the website. Data will be monitored regularly to allow for adjustment to our approach to roll-out, to promote equality in who Active Lives reaches. We will also seek to understand barriers and facilitators to roll-out by interviewing those who implement Active Lives in practice.
