The coronavirus crisis is unprecedented in modern times. Physical activity matters during this period and, actually, we think it’s more important than ever right now. We want to do everything that we can to support people to get and stay active, provided they are well enough.
As a result Leicester Rutland Sport (LRS) have now been able to launch their Healthy At Home offer which they will continue to develop and promote over the forthcoming months and are looking for support from partners to do so.
Their Healthy At Home webpage (www.lrsport.org/HealthyAtHome) hosts a range of resources, links, hints and tips to support people be Active At Home, Work At Home, Wellbeing At Home. This will be an expanding and developing resource.
