The #MoveWithUsBerkshire campaign aims to promote the importance and benefits of physical activity for all the stakeholders across the PA sector in our county (organisations and individuals) to raise the 'staying active' behaviour to a top priority for the 'new normal' life and daily routine.
We are inviting our partners and physical activity providers in Berkshire to join the campaign, promote their activity sessions, learn how to make the sessions more inclusive, engage with different audiences and initiate behaviour change among inactive people and, as a result, to help Berkshire residents become more active and resist the virus and its impact.

Being active and supporting others to be active has never been more important, for both our physical health and mental wellbeing.
At Get Berkshire Active, we're offering free online training sessions (1 hour) for community volunteers e.g. befrienders, helpers, navigators, etc. and volunteer co-ordinators, to enable and encourage others to be physically active through our everyday conversations. We cover the benefits of physical activity, guidelines, tips, key free resources, and positive conversation skills. Plus offer a digital resource pack following the session.
"I'll take away how important conversations around keeping active are and the wider impact that can have. I will definitely be more conscious of having more open conversations with my clients." - feedback from webinar attendee (Slough, 4th August).
