The Eat Well Be Active Reference Group will provide expert oversight and quality assurance to the Eat Well Be Active framework. It will ensure all strands involved in increasing physical activity and promoting healthy eating are pulled together to create a robust, systematic and broad structure which addresses lifestyle, behaviour change, our physical environments and issues of access to healthy food and green space.
The group is chaired by the Cabinet Member for Communities and Wellbeing, Cheshire West and Chester Council.
Other members include:
- Active Cheshire
