Sport England research has shown that coronavirus (Covid-19) has made it much harder for people to get active and we know the change of season will only make it more difficult.
To help inspire and motivate people in our communities to continue to be physically active, Sport England have produced an Autumn and Winter Activity Toolkit that’s packed with resources and information.
Sport and physical activity deliver immediate mental health and social benefits, while having a long-term positive impact on our physical health.
Getting active in the way that’s right for us – and planning how we’re going to keep going through the colder, darker months – will help us cope with the ongoing impact of coronavirus restrictions.
The Autumn and Winter Activity Toolkit, curated by Sport England, will make it easier for anyone trying to help their communities find the locally relevant tools, advice and information they need to get and keep moving. Find out more on Sport England's website.
On Thursday 5 November new national restrictions came into effect to try and help curb the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19).
These restrictions have a significant impact on grassroots sport and physical activity with many facilities closing and limits placed on the number of people who can take part in sport and physical activity together.
