Active Belfast Spring into Action project

Active Belfast Spring into Action project

Funded by Belfast City Council – Spring into Action project at the Centre is  aimed at increasing participation in physical activity and awareness  healthier lifestyles amongst women and children.

The project ran from April 2016 – March 2017 and engaged over 150 women and children in a varied programme of activities of  Armchair aerobics, Pilates, Zumba, Swimming, Pramtastics  and kids exercise sessions. Health & Nutrition were key elements of the programme with participants involved in cookery and gardening sessions.

The key outcomes of our project were:

  • women of all ages and cultural backgrounds, who currently had little or no engagement in physical activities, became engaged in a range of activities for all abilities.
  • participants engaged in nutritional awareness and practical healthy cookery sessions aimed at replicating this learning to the home.
  • children increased their level of physical activity by taking part in sports sessions with a coach.

We are delighted to  have been awarded funding for the second year to continue this programme until March 2018.
