This Girl Can
This Girl Can, Sport England’s flagship campaign to help women get active, is turning its attention to tackling the exercise ‘Enjoyment Gap’ – as it reveals 2.4 million fewer women than men enjoy sport and physical activity. ‘This Girl Can With You’ is a call-to-arms for sport and activity providers to dismantle the barriers that contribute to the Enjoyment Gap. Help women enjoy getting active by ensuring activities for women are:
- Social (help women feel part of a community)
- Suitable (meet women’s needs)
- Self-Affirming (help women feel confident)
- Safe (women must feel physically and emotionally safe when taking part).
Moving Medicine is a comprehensive resource designed to help healthcare professionals integrate physical activity conversations into routine clinical care. They’ve launched 4 new resources to help healthcare professionals have better conversations about physical activity with people suffering from anxiety, type 1 diabetes, people who are obese and people experiencing menopause.
To help address concerns around physical activity and risk, read the recently launched consensus statement around the safety advice healthcare professionals should give to people with long term health conditions.
We Are Undefeatable
We Are Undefeatable was created by Sport England, in collaboration with 15 leading health and social care charities, to support people with long-term health conditions to become more active. The campaign features inspiring stories and provides a range of activity suggestions for people living with different types of conditions, providing “ways to move” that fit into their lives and around their personal circumstances.
Make Your Move are a series of free short physical activity videos created especially for people with long term health conditions. Activities are shown in three different ways – chair based, supported and standing, so you can choose the level that feels right for you.
NHS Better Health
The NHS Better Health campaign provides resources to help people kickstart their health, by making small changes to their lifestyle. There are resources to help with losing weight, getting more active and quitting smoking, as well as links to the Every Mind Matters mental health campaign and its resources.
Join the Movement
Join the Movement is a National Lottery-funded campaign helping us all find ways to get active. The website offers tips, advice and guidance on simple, fun and free ways to get active, both indoors and outdoors, that people can enjoy safely.
EXI exercise prescription app
EXi is an evidence-based, NHS-approved app, which analyses user health and fitness and prescribes a personalised physical activity programme. The app provides tailored exercise plans at the right intensity level for each patient.
See Sport Differently
See Sport Differently was created in partnership with the RNIB and British Blind Sport to tackle the biggest barriers that stop blind and partially sighted people enjoying sport and activity. Blind and partially sighted people are twice as likely to be inactive than people without sight loss. Together, they want to change this.
You can read the stories of those who have shared their journey about getting involved in activities, as well as find your own activity that is inclusive and accessible for people with sight loss by taking part in a quiz.
