We at Active Future understand that competitive and organised sports are not for everyone. Added to this that the vast majority of activity is now adult led has led to the disappearance of child led play and a huge reduction in sampling different sports and activities. We are bringing the playground back and this will underpin all of our activities within this programme. We will be building assault courses, playing hide and seek, tag games and even bike and scooter courses. We cannot wait to get started.
Active Future has been established to instil a love of movement. We believe everyone has the right to take part and play no matter what their athletic ability and we are committed to reducing the huge drop out rates in sport and physical activity. Everything we do is inclusive and supportive and puts the person at the centre of the activity. We often use non traditional means to get and keep people loving and have brought many online activities to life such a Hunted, Fortnite and The Apprentice. We have already delivered to tens of thousands of of children, young people and families and are looking forward to being part of this project and helping the people of Wallsend become more active.
