Everyone seems to be thinking about increasing their physical activity.
This time last year 10,000 steps was the ‘in thing’ but now it is all about doing something you enjoy. However, there are still many adults and children who are physically inactive. There are many reasons for this; lack of places to go, the streets are unsafe, the local green space is too far away or the gym doesn’t offer classes at the right time. Not everyone likes the gym, some prefer to walk, cycle or do their own thing on front of the TV.
Inactivity is killing our children and we demand that every child is given the fundamental #RightToBeActive.
80% of girls and 77% of boys are not active enough to stay healthy and one in five children are classified as obese before they reach secondary school.
Sport and recreation can help solve many of the biggest threats facing our children. Making it part of their daily lives will make them healthier and happier.
That is why I am are proud to be supporting the #RightToBeActive campaign and we encourage you to join us.

It is their call to government to give every child the fundamental right to be physically active and they are creating a long-term, properly funded and child-focussed strategy to transform the physical and mental wellbeing of our children.Together we can create a better, healthier and happier future for our children.
