Engaging Inactive Young people

Date: Tuesday 11th May 16:00 - 18:00   Location: Online   Cost: £0

How can we attract inactive young people to sport and physical activity sessions?

There are a high number of young people from low income/lower socio-economic groups that are either inactive or not active enough for health (and wider social) benefits. This workshop will offer ideas for how you can attract inactive young people to sport sessions.


By the end of the workshop learners will:

  • Understand what is meant by Inactivity and the complex nature of the subject.
  • Know why it is important to understand young peoples’ lives and potential barriers to engaging with activity.
  • Understand how to use behaviour change tactics such as EAST and Nudge to engage inactive youth.
  • Know how to retain participants that were previously inactive.

Please note: Participants should be supporting young people in Hampshire (including Portsmouth, Southampton, and Isle of Wight).

We ask that no more than 2 participants per organisation – if you have additional staff or volunteers who would benefit from this session, please contact Helen or Emma.

If you have any additional needs or learning requirements, please get in touch as we would love to accommodate you as best we can!
