Be Active with our Campaign Weeks!

Sport and Physical Activity is an important part of our lives, no matter what our age or ability.

In partnership with our 9 Local Authorities, we host 3 mass participation Campaign Weeks throughout the year.

During 2015/16 over 8,000 individuals of all ages and abilities took part in a range of exciting opportunities to increase their activity levels.


Active Family Week
13th - 19th February 2017

Sport and physical activity is an important part of all our lives but keeping active around family life can be sometimes difficult. So why not do it together?

Active Family Week, which launches on Monday 13th February, is a fun and active week of family friendly physical activity and sport sessions designed for families to move more often and get active together.

In partnership with localities, the week will see over 140 sessions for all ages and abilities to try including buggy runs, orienteering, family swims and exercise classes plus much more!

For more information on local activities and to check out the activity timetables on the programme below, for you and your family to get involved in!
