• What will I learn?

    This workshop will equip you with ideas on how to best engage members of your community in physical activity. As part of this you will explore your own memories and feelings towards physical activity. You will look at how others within your community might have barriers as to why they don’t take part and how those that do take part have overcome them.

  • What's involved?

    This workshop will take you about 45 minutes to complete, with activities for you to complete throughout; make sure you have paper and a pen ready before you start. There are downloadable resources for you to use and help your learning.

  • Who is this for?

    This workshop is for anyone who could use more physical activity within their setting and wants to know where to start. You might be a community leader, student or volunteer.
