Get Active Bassetlaw

During the coronavirus outbreak, when we are more physically isolated than we might normally be, it is as important as ever to focus on our wellbeing.

Mental health charity Mind advise that keeping active is one of the ways which you can take care of your mental health and wellbeing, as well as gaining the physical health benefits of being more active.

Local organisations in Bassetlaw have collected trusted information to help ALL people be active in and around their home during the coronavirus outbreak so that we can all stay in and work out.

Here are some fun ideas for all abilities to stay active, maintain your wellbeing and encourage others to join the movement!

Shapemaster uses a physiotherapist to support older adults and those with long term health conditions. These workouts can be completed seated, or on the floor so all can join in!

This is being supported by Bassetlaw’s ‘Get Out Get Active’ team. Get Out Get Active (GOGA) is an exciting programme that supports disabled and non-disabled people to enjoy being active together. It is made possible by founding funder Spirit of 2012 and additional investment from Sport England and the London Marathon Charitable Trust.

All partners are focused on getting some of the UK’s least active people moving more through fun and inclusive activities. Bassetlaw Action Centre, in partnership with Bassetlaw District Council, has been successful in becoming a GOGA locality, and look forward to working with all Bassetlaw partners to develop a district wide strategy for physical activity.

If you need help to access this information or want to tell us how you are staying in and working out – we would love to hear from you!
