Women & Girls

activeNewham is committed to providing activities targeted at women and girls to engage young people and adults who may currently be inactive.

Projects such as Us Girls and Every Family Active have provided new opportunities for women and girls in Newham to take part in Sport and Physical Activity.

A number of activities set up through projects such as this have now been established in the community and continue to deliver sessions on a weekly basis including Pilates, Zumba, Yoga and Gym.

Women Only Gym Sessions

activeNewham provides an extensive programme of female only sports and physical activity sessions, to give women of all ages and abilities the chance to improve their health and fitness. These sessions are carried out in a safe and fun environment with opportunities to make new friends and meet new people.

This Girl Can

activeNewham is proud to support "This Girl Can"

This Girl Can is a Sport England campaign designed to encourage all women and girls to get more active and having fun doing it.

The campaign was driven by the findings of research carried out by Sport England exploring the relevant motivations, barriers and triggers to getting more women more active.

According to the Active People Survey men play more sport than women at almost every age. However, when asked, 13 million women said they would like to participate in more sport and physical activity.

Further research into what's stopping women turning their ambitions into reality found that a fear of judgement – on appearance, ability or how they chose to spend time on themselves – puts women of all ages off exercising.

The This Girl Can campaign aims to prompt a change in attitudes and help boost women’s confidence.
