Epping Forest locality
Epping Forest, named after the ancient woodland and former royal hunting forest, stretches 12 miles from London to Epping. It is a local government district in Essex with a population of approximately 131,689 residents.
Our work at Active Essex includes supporting the Active Epping Forest Network which is a virtual network embedded within the Epping Forest Health and Wellbeing Board and it’s three working sub-groups. The network priorities aim to support community sports and help grow participation in physical activity across the district. The active network has successfully assisted leveraging in additional funding from the CCG for the district, which contributes to addressing the health inequalities of Epping Forest Residents.
