Sport plays an important part for our Physical and Community Wellbeing. Today 7th Feb is Girls & Women in Sports Day. Check out the video here of some of our staff talking about what sports means for them to encourage more staff to participate in sports.

Participating in sports encourages the forging of friendships and support. It can be crucial for keeping us connected. Try finding a sport that interests you and give it a go. See if there’s a local club. Most local clubs are really beginner friendly and while this can be intimidating, after your first session it won’t be so scary.

Participating in sports outside of work also encourages a better work life balance and can reduce stress. Choose a sport that sounds fun, as that’s the main goal, is to have fun and all the rest will follow.
