Building Better Opportunities
Building Better Opportunities is an exciting collaboration that aims to meet the needs of people living in East Berkshire, who remain the most excluded from the workforce. This project embeds the Supported Employment model within all its practice and all partners have signed up to this vision.
A programme funded by Sport England that aims to encourage community sports clubs, groups and physical activity providers to run outposts of their clubs in new community settings. Satellite clubs make it easier for young people to get active by providing regular opportunities that are enjoyable, appealing and convenient. They are more importantly, based on our young people's needs.
This Girl Can
In October 2018 This Girl Can has launched a new phase of its award-winning campaign that's working to drive down the gender gap in sport. #FitGotReal aims to build on the campaign's achievements so far, as well as specifically reaching out to women of backgrounds and ethnicities who feel left behind by traditional exercise.
Whether you run a class, club or leisure centre, or are just on a one-person mission to help women you know and care about find their way to get active, there's something for you in our This Girl Can Supporter's Toolkit.
Project 500 is a campaign to address the imbalance in the number of male to female coaches, creating a more diverse workforce to drive the growth of female participation in sport. It has seen over 500 female coaches recruited, developed and deployed across the seven South East counties.
Activate Britwell provides physical activity opportunities and life-changing experiences to young people living in the area. If you want to become more active, learn new skills and meet new people, join us!
Active Lives Survey Children and Young People
On behalf of Sport England, Get Berkshire Active administers the government Active Lives survey for Children & Young People in the county. The school survey which takes place in randomly selected schools for Years 1 to 11 will help us gain a broad and deep understanding of participation in, and attitudes towards, sport and physical activity. It will also help shape future policy and investment.
As well as being selected, schools can also opt in. In order for a school to achieve the recently introduced Healthy Schools Award rating the Active Lives survey for Children & Young People must be carried out.
If you are making contact from a school and would like to know more about the survey please contact James Craggs firstname.lastname@example.org
