Abstract Introduction:<\b>
There are growing number of people with long terms conditions and disabilities in the UK, which has repercussions for individuals and society. There is significant evidence pointing towards clinical outcomes and other benefits arising from physical activity as management for a range of symptoms and conditions. The Richmond Group members and affiliates are well placed to work together to support people with long term conditions and disability to increase their physical activity levels. Method: Supporting more people to be physically active requires improved understanding of the barriers to and the facilitators of physical activity. The Richmond Group have undertaken insight to explore this and create an approach to support people into activity based on behaviour change theory and tailored messaging. They are collaborating to share and apply learning through evidence-based interventions. Results:<\b>
The Richmond Group has widely disseminated its insight amongst a range of audiences and continues to build on this as evidence and learning is accumulated. Application of learning and evidence through discrete delivery projects, has highlighted that physical activity needs to be made more accessible and achievable to improve engagement and it needs to be underpinned by behaviour change to optimise adherence. Conclusion:<\b>
Working together to understand physical inactivity amongst people with a broad spectrum of conditions, symptoms and impairments and apply learning in different settings with different approaches has enabled the Richmond Group and partners to develop increasingly targeted and effective approaches to reducing physical inactivity and increasing activity.
