Ebbsfleet Garden City case study
Get Active in Ebbsfleet is a complex behaviour change intervention that encourages local people to be more active, visit local parks and connect with others.
Ebbsfleet Garden City is being developed as an NHS Healthy New Town, a development that puts health and wellbeing first by encouraging and enabling people to be more physically active.
In 2018–2019 Get Active in Ebbsfleet exceeded its target number of engaged users. 60% of people that were previously inactive met the NHS’ recommended weekly physical activity baseline of 150 minutes at least once, while 38% kept it going for at least three weeks.
