Staying Active at home
Return of activities
Everything in regard to sport and physical activity has returned to normal and there are currently no set restrictions, but if you are still shielding through choice, we are here to help people stay active at home.
Self-quarantining and new government measures meant that many individuals and families across Derbyshire have experienced alternative ways of getting physical exercise.
As a team and a wider community, we're trying to build activity into our day as much as possible, and supporting those around us to be active at home - in a way that suits them - has become a big part of that.
We have gathered the below resources to help those looking for ideas on how to stay active at home.
