Building Activity in our Communities

Creating stronger and better connected communities

Taking part in sport and physical activity helps create and strengthen connections within and between communities.

Sport and physical activity create opportunities to build bridges between groups of people that might not otherwise connect. They also support people to develop connections to the environments they live and work in.

By increasing access to volunteering and coaching development opportunities, we can ensure sport and physical activity plays a positive role in developing skills and self-confidence, and supporting people to more easily access education and employment.

We know that the opportunities and barriers will be unique to each community. For this reason, we have dedicated locality officers working within each district in Norfolk to help you grow these ideas and bring them to life.


Walk Leader Training modules

Our walk leader training is a series of modules that will provide you with the information you need to lead short guided walks in a safe and confident manner.

Guided walks are a fantastic way of getting communities together and being physically active. They can be tailored to all abilities, and enable people who might not otherwise feel confident walking to take part.
