The Active Practices Charter is an initiative by The Royal College of GPs and Sport England to inspire GP practices to commit to increasing activity and reducing sedentary behaviour in both staff and patients.
The Active Practice Charter is a fun, easy way to make some simple but impactful changes in your workplace that will demonstrate to your patients and staff that you mean it when you say that movement is the best medicine. Practices can join by making simple changes to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of patients and staff. Signposting to local exercise classes.
Its free to sign up, you just need to demonstrate that your practice has taken steps to:
- Reduce sedentary behaviour in staff;
- Reduce sedentary behaviour in patient;
- Increase physical activity in staff;
- Increase physical activity in patients;
- Partner with a local physical activity.

Developing links with your local park run in order to become a Park Run Practice is a great way to work towards becoming an active practice.
