In this time of uncertainty in our homes, staying active has never been as important for health and wellbeing. As a national message to homes across the country the government have promoted the role of physical activity and exercise. When our children are being isolated, away from their peers the importance of keeping moving and active is important in safeguarding their mental and emotional wellbeing.
Join the Movement is our brand-new campaign, spearheaded by Sport England funded by The National Lottery, giving you the advice and tools you need to help you do this while the country deals with the coronavirus outbreak.
Official advice is to stay at home, and to only go outside for one form of exercise a day, to shop for basic necessities, if there's a medical reason and travelling to and from essential work. https://www.sportengland.org/stayinworkout
