    Stay Active at Home

    We understand that Covid-19, or Coronavirus, raises concerns around being active, particularly within sport and physical activity environments and facilities. However, there has never been a more important time to remain active, for positive mental wellbeing and physical health.

Whilst the coming months remain uncertain, as the strategic lead for sport and physical activity across the two counties, we are committed to supporting clubs, coaches, volunteers and the professional workforce to adapt to changes, and thrive as a sector beyond the pandemic.

April of 2020 saw me in a very low state of mind as I waited for tests and results to see if the treatment had been successful, hopefully it would lead to a significant increase in life expectancy. My Clinical Nurse Specialist referred me to counselling, it was the counsellor who told me about the Move More program, this ultimately led me to Active Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
