She’s Ready

Posted on the 3rd June 2019

Active Life for a Healthier You helps people of all ages and abilities get active and stay active. Its newly-funded She’s Ready project will help women who are experiencing life-changing circumstances and challenges, including disabled women, mothers with small children, those who have suffered domestic violence and retirees.

She’s Ready will empower two hundred women through different levels of volunteer engagement – from occasional volunteering through to running classes and events to increase physical activity in their community. Women will be empowered by designing, delivering, and shaping the development of the events, often with the opportunity to train to become fitness instructors themselves.

Active Essex

We’re a publicly funded organisation, hosted by Essex County Council, whose aim is to make sport and physical activity accessible to all Essex residents.
