Carers often face a challenging time, and many have seen their own health and wellbeing impacted by their caring responsibilities. Carers UK is a supportive community and a movement for change to make life better for all carers in the UK. Their campaign Carers Active raises awareness of the importance of achievable, accessible and affordable physical activity for carers, and highlights the benefits to carers of moving more.

This April, Carers Active want organisations to come together and run physical activity events such as walks, online yoga or dance sessions for unpaid carers.

As Sport England announces the next phase of its flagship campaign ‘This Girl Can’ and shifts its attention to tackling the exercise ‘Enjoyment Gap’ and as Project 500 (More Women, Better Coaching) celebrates its 10th Birthday, it seemed timely to do a Spotlight On: Female Participation.

Showcasing the support available to help more women to become more active, to reduce the enjoyment gap, to encourage more women into coaching and to help women move through the various life stages, we hope you find the articles and information of interest.

Inclusive Opportunities

Active Kent & Medway visited Whitstable Lawn Tennis Club last year to hear how Vanessa, in partnership with Inclusive Sports, used Sport England’s Together Fund to offer inclusive tennis sessions for the local learning disabled community. It is clear how their sessions have improved access to a range of opportunities, as well as reducing isolation and enabling participants to make lasting friendships.
