Community centres, arts centres and school halls often host activities. These venues can be less intimidating for those who don’t see themselves as “sporty”. Search for your local centre online or pop in and see what’s on.
It’s also worth looking at local charity websites. Many charities run activities to support specific groups or health conditions. We’re working with local youth charities to increase opportunities through Energise YOUth.
