Butlins event

Join us to collaborate, consider and co-create opportunities to improve the health and wellbeing of our local communities. Free to attend, early bird ticket priority is being given to our members.

Team Lincolnshire, in partnership with Butlin’s Skegness, invite you to join them to collaborate, consider and co-create opportunities to improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland, supporting greater economic productivity and prosperity for the region.

This in-person, interactive event hosted by record-breaking England rugby legend and business performance consultant, Rory Underwood MBE DL, will feature expert keynote presentations from captivating speakers across business and industry, local government and our charity partners.

The evidence is clear – a more active nation is a more productive and prosperous one. To meet our shared local economic ambition a healthy workforce has to be central to this. Whilst tech and digital provides us some solutions, it is people that make this county what it is and bring the innovation, culture, personality and ingenuity to Lincolnshire.

With 30% of the adult population of Lincolnshire being ‘inactive’ (that is they move for less than 30 minutes a week); high levels of diabetes, an ageing population and an escalating number of people over 50 experiencing long term health conditions and evidence of the widening inequalities gap, now is the time for us to come together to understand how we can better support the people of Lincolnshire.

During the day, the presentations and discussions will cover:

  •  The significant investment being made to improve the health and wellbeing of the resident population in Mablethorpe and Skegness through the Towns Fund and Connected Coasts.
  •  The systemic and cultural shift needed to ensure options to move more and live healthier lifestyles are available to everyone.
  •  Insights into developing healthy spaces through the built environment.
  •  How Team Lincolnshire members and local businesses have invested in the wellbeing of their own workforce and contributed to the wellbeing of neighbouring communities through their commitment to social value.

We aim to explore what an innovative partnership of public, private and third sector could do to help our grass roots physical activity thrive, influence and shape policy and investment to support healthy lifestyles and ultimately how we can invest in our people so we have a happy, healthy, productive workforce.
