Free promotion for physical activity and sport sessions
Over 20 million people in the UK are classed as physically inactive. One of the reasons for this is a lack of awareness of local opportunities to be active. We have joined forces with London Sport to tackle the problem head on with two new activity finders for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
Get Active Hampshire and Get Active IOW are web-based activity finders, which will enable all sports clubs and organisations to advertise their sessions free of charge. By making it free to promote sessions, we aim to create a one-stop shop for local residents to find activities near them.
We’re now calling for activity providers to add their sessions to the sites.
If you run sport or physical activity sessions on the Isle of Wight and would like to promote what you do please upload your sessions to www.getactive.io/iow
For Hampshire go to www.getactive.io/hampshire
Harry Stow, who is leading on the project for Energise Me, said:
“We’re committed to building a happier, healthier and stronger community. We want to support activity providers to raise awareness of their sessions and ultimately help local residents find activities that are right for them.”
Peter Meldrum, Digital Product Manager at London Sport, said:
“The platform, which is based on technology developed by London Sport, uses open data to help providers put their activity in front of people across the region and support efforts to increase activity levels.”
Add your sessions today and let’s get Hampshire and the Isle of Wight moving!
