Harlow locality

Harlow is a town and local government district in the west of Essex with a population of approximately 91,284 residents. A major feature of Harlow New Town is its green spaces; over one third of the borough is parkland or fields containing public footpaths.

Our work at Active Essex includes supporting the Harlow Active Network, which is a virtual network that supports community sport and physical activity while aiming to address the health inequalities of Harlow residents. The network contributes to the work of the Harlow Health and Wellbeing Board and the working sub-groups that sit underneath it. Each year, Active Harlow hosts a local awards to recognise and celebrate sporting and community achievements.
