Get Active in your area
The 'Get Active in Ebbsfleet' programme launched in March 2018 and is in partnership with Ebbsfleet Garden City, Healthy New Town and your local NHS (Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley Clinical Commissioning Group).
Once you step outside your home you can earn BetterPoints for walking, cycling or running. Then use your BetterPoints to reward yourself, by selecting any of these rewards, or donate them to any of the charities from this list. If you spot a charity you'd like to see on the BetterPoints website let us know by getting in touch here.
This programme is open to residents of Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley, plus people who work within the Ebbsfleet Garden City who live further afield.
