We are delighted to be working with Oxfordshire County Council Public Health, district councils, schools and local communities to launch YouMove across the county and provide families with low cost and free activities to enjoy together.
By signing up to YouMove, local families will benefit from low cost or free fun activities including swimming, badminton, activity packs and a wide range of community activities near to where they live. As well as being able to enjoy being active together, families will also be supported by local Activators in each district who will provide lots of advice, support and guidance about what's on offer.
YouMove comes at a critically important time, with many Oxfordshire families hit hard by the cost-of-living crisis and serious concerns around the mental health and wellbeing of Oxfordshire's children and young people. Being able to get active in a way that works for them will help families to enjoy quality time together, have fun and improve their health and wellbeing, too.
YouMove is funded by Oxfordshire County Council Public Health and co-ordinated by Active Oxfordshire, in partnership with district councils. Local charities and community organisations will also play a key role in referring into YouMove and providing many of the community-based activities on offer. YouMove builds on the fantastic work of Cherwell District Council's FAST Programme and is set to make a significant difference to the health and wellbeing of Oxfordshire's children in greatest need, and their families.
