Our projects increase physical activity in Hampshire and IOW.
Take a look back at a few highlights of our year in the Energise Me Annual Report and Accounts.
The report charts our progress towards tackling the things that prevent active lifestyles. It also includes our audited accounts, which explain where our money has come from and how we’ve spent it.
Our trustees are responsible for preparing these reports in line with the law and UK accounting standards. We publish a report in the autumn of each year.
For too long the people with the most to gain from being active have been the least likely to take part. In 2021 we brought together the voices of over 800 individuals and organisations in a new strategy for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
The We Can Be Active Strategy sets out a joint mission to inspire and support active lifestyles so we can all be active in a way that suits us.
It is a pleasure to share some of the highlights of the charity’s work over the last year. Two milestones in particular stand out for me. Firstly, the publication of the We Can Be Active Strategy. As co-ordinators, we had a responsibility to ensure the voices of people and organisations across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight were heard and represented in the strategy. Also, we needed to connect with and build a network of ‘Bold Leaders’ who could play their part delivering the strategy’s mission.
Secondly, after a delay due to the pandemic, it was rewarding for the Trustees to see the Agency Project recruit the first Agents. We saw how young people – with some guidance, support and development along the way – can be amazing agents of change in their community.
I would like to thank all our ‘Bold Leaders’. Without them, we could not make the wide-ranging changes needed to respond to the ask of those who contributed to the strategy.
Being active, however we choose, can make a difference to all our lives. People’s stories, the people and organisations we have worked with, the strong sense of purpose and clear national and local strategy, give me so much hope...
