Active Families is a new programme aiming to get families more physically active together through fun and convenient activities in the community. The project is funded by Sport England through National Lottery money and is delivered in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
The project is working in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council Public Health, Fenland District Council, Vivacity, Living Sport (County Sport Partnership for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough) and Cambridge City Council.
Active Families includes:
- Free term time facilitated activity sessions taking place in Fenland and Peterborough, with activities ranging from story walks starting from the school gate to more team sport based activities.
- During school holidays there will be a number of roadshows to take place where families can find out more information of local family based provision, and take part in activities
- A free to use treasure hunt app ‘Wildgoose’ will be available, which is accessible on tablets and smartphones where families can access physical activity treasure hunt challenges.
- Support and advice to help your family become more active.
As part of the programme Local Co-ordinator’s have been appointed to work in the three priority areas. Follow the links below to contact the team for support or further information.
