Have you got your copy of the Active at Home Guide?

Booklets to encourage people to be active at home have been distributed to vaccination hubs across Derbyshire recently.

The Active at Home Guides, which were initially produced to help people shielding during lockdown by Move More Sheffield, have been designed to support those who have been shielding or unable to be active.

Insight has shown that activity levels have decreased during the most recent lockdown and this creates further inequalities in health for some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.

The Guide contains simple activities that can be done at home, in limited space and with no equipment, along with tips to improve mental health.

Stuart Batchelor, Director at Active Derbyshire, who printed and distributed the guides said;

"We know that being active can help us in so many ways, both mentally and physically and we want to support those people who have been unable to be active during the pandemic. We hope the guide will provide some guidance and reassurance that people can be active, in a way that works for them."

If you've recently been vaccinated and received a copy or if you're working or volunteering at one of the hubs, we'd love to know what you think of the Guide and what other support people might need to get active so contact us at marketing@activepartnerstrust.org.uk

The guide is available to view and download here.
