The Bailiwick’s recent experience of lockdowns has shown us the importance of families keeping active at home. Lots of us found that keeping active helped our mental and physical health. For inspiration, check out our film showing how other islanders kept active in lockdown.

We have updated and expanded the range of resources and ideas for children, families, adults and older adults to keep active.

Children, Young People & Families

Remember to focus on having fun, involve your kids in choosing what activities to do and make sure that they have the chance to succeed early, before increasing the challenge! Why not agree two 20 or 30 minute slots each day to get active together?
