Active Living NSW

Active Living NSW supports physical activity and healthy built environments in NSW

Active Living NSW was established in April 2017 as a partnership between NSW Ministry of Health and the National Heart Foundation - NSW Division. The program supports the physical activity and healthy built environment deliverables of the NSW Healthy Eating and Active Living Strategy.  It continues key pieces of work previously undertaken by the NSW Premier’s Council for Active Living (PCAL) to promote active living through influencing the physical and social environments in which communities live.
