Upload Your Sessions To The Activity Finder

Hampshire and the Isle of Wight residents are searching for sessions near them that will inspire them to move more, narrowing down by ability, facilities, cost and more. Over 1,000 sessions are already listed, and it couldn’t be simpler for yours to be included too – we’ve included handy step by step instructions to get you up and running.

Get Active is a free physical activity directory which allows you to upload your sessions so you can reach a much larger audience.

Why Should You Upload Your Sessions?

Join us on the We Can Be Active mission to create happier healthier communities. During the We Can Be Active consultation, local people told us that it’s difficult to find activities because there is no single place to look.

It takes around 15 minutes to sign up and upload your first session to this Hampshire and Isle of Wight wide directory and becomes quicker the more you do it! 

By uploading your sessions, you could: 

  • Free marketing to increase your visibility, reach and participant numbers 
  • Post your session once and be live straight away 
  • You can upload repeat sessions in one go 
  • No charges or subscriptions for the activity provider or the Get Active user 
  • Free widget to publicise sessions on your own website.

Energise Me is committed to helping people begin their activity journey, finding opportunities which are right for them and their needs which is why our marketing team develop campaigns throughout the year to promote this tool.

Top Tips - What To Include

In line with the We Can Be Active strategy, the information you’re asked to give will help participants decide if it’s the right opportunity for them. These include the standard details like date, time, location and price. But will also cover guidance about difficulty level, what facilities the venue has (eg. changing rooms, parking, lockers) and other available support for those with physical or learning impairments. 

You can even link to YouTube videos to your session’s profile so that the potential participant can see the venue, learn more about what the activity involves and hear testimonials from others.
