Fit For All 2021

Oct 11, 2021 - Oct 17, 2021

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 2021 Fit For All week will take place from the 11th – 17th of October.  The national Fit For All week is aimed at increasing awareness among people with disabilities, their families/carers and disability services on the benefits of regular exercise, a healthy lifestyle and opportunities to participate in physical activity within the local community.

Fit For All also aims to increase awareness and build the capacity of leisure & fitness professionals in providing accessible programmes and facilities for people with disabilities in their local community.

As part of the Fit For All 2021week we are offering substantial equipment packs to Leisure Centres and Gyms who link with their local Adult Disability Service as part of the week with a view to ensuring that physical activity can be enabled and supported following Fit For All week.
