What you’ll be doing

Physical activity is beneficial for everybody. In children it has been shown to improve health, confidence and happiness and has a positive effect on concentration in school and beyond, improving memory and classroom behaviour.

Active Together is all about families with children planning and making decisions together on the kinds of activities they want to do. We encourage families with children in primary school to increase their physical activity levels, doing at least 30-60 minutes of activity a week.

It does not matter what activity people do or how good they are at it – having fun together is what’s important and helps ensure children grow up to be active adults.

We support and inspire families of all ages and abilities to be active together throughout the week by delivering positive and enjoyable physical activity experiences both online, and in the local community.

Join our Active Together programme to:

  • Spend time together as a family
  • Improve health, happiness and fitness
  • Have fun and learn new things

Register to join and you will receive a free Activity Pack which contains ideas and tips on how to creatively increase activity levels as a family.
