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. Learn more about This Girl Can here:
