HOOP UK is a national charity but we realise the importance of working at a more local level. To this end we have created our first HOOP UK Regional Group as a pilot scheme – Greater Manchester. We will be working with local health and community organisations as well as getting inovled with gyms and other health and wellbeing groups.
