Move More Coordinator

Rachael Weston

Organisation and primary role: Yorkshire Sport Foundation - Development Manager (Sheffield)

Background: Most of my career has been spent working in the voluntary sector in Sheffield delivering and coordinating Public Health projects in the most disadvantaged communities. I have also delivered weight management programmes across the city for children, families, young people and adults.

More recently I worked at South Yorkshire Housing Association leading on service improvement and customer voice across their health, care and support services. In addition to this, I have spent time working on a project with Health & Social Care Commissioners across the Sheffield City Region, to imbed coproduction into the design, delivery and evaluation of services.

Working collaboratively has always been at the core of my work and ensuring services and provisions are designed with the people who will be accessing them, so they are fit for purpose, particularly for those hardest to reach. I have built knowledge and skills in whole systems and asset based approaches, inclusion and diversity, and behaviour change. I am also very familiar with Sheffield having lived here all of my life.

I am passionate about giving everyone the same chances to lead a healthy lifestyle and be able to access physical activity opportunities which are suitable for individual needs. I am excited to be part of the Move More team and help make this happen in Sheffield.

Educaton: BSc (Honours) Public Health and Nutrition

How do you like to stay active? I enjoy attending my local community gym and taking part in high intensity training classes. I feel very lucky to live in Sheffield and like to make the most of the great outdoors with regular runs and long weekend walks.
