Community Fitness Programme

Enable Leisure and Culture was commissioned with an amount of £4,500 to deliver a Community Fitness programme plus £4,500 for community grants.

The setup and development of physical activity sessions in BLSW11 was a key element of their proposal. BLSW11 wanted to help residents who are in most need of increasing their physical activity levels. National and local evidence tells us that our most inactive groups are:

Older people (50+)
Those living in poverty and deprivation
Black and minority ethnic groups
People living with a disability or long term health condition

BLSW11 is fortunate to have several established community organisations that are best placed to reach many of these target groups who often do not engage with open access mainstream activities.
