Workplace Physical Activity Consultation

The ukactive Research Institute, in partnership with Sport England, are conducting a consultation to understand more about the opportunities people have to be physically active during the working day, with a particular focus on small to medium sized enterprises across the UK.

The survey is about understanding what employers are currently doing to support employee physical activity, what works, what does not work, and what further support is needed to help employees move more while at work. This consultation also aims to understand how the fitness and leisure sector, for example gyms, leisure centres and personal trainers, are currently supporting organisations to be active, and to gather further insight so they can provide the best support possible.  

As a thank you for taking part ukactive would like to offer you, as an individual, the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw to win one of three £50 amazon vouchers. You have the option of entering your email address for this at the end of the survey.

Shaping Our Lives – inclusive involvement

Shaping Our Lives is taking on a new shape with the help of a four year grant from the National Lottery Community Fund. They have a mission to advance the inclusive involvement of d/Deaf and Disabled people, service users, carers and other people who experience inequalities or barriers when accessing services.

Shaping Our Lives want to provide people with support and information to ensure your voices are meaningfully and equally represented when service providers are making decisions about how their services should be run.

The people who use services should be asked about their experiences in order to improve these services. This is usually called consultation, engagement, involvement, or co-production. The organisations involved might be a health or social care provider, a regulator, a research body or educational establishment.

Research shows that often the experiences of people from diverse communities are not heard in these involvement activities because the way they are done does not allow everyone to take part equally.

They really want to hear what you think would help you to take part and influence services to work better for you and other people in similar situations.

The world is changing rapidly, and charities are under immense pressure to continue providing vital services for their beneficiaries. We are eager to uncover how the sector is coping with the crisis and ensure charity voices are heard by the government.

With charities left out of official statistics, the PBE Covid Charity Tracker has been the sector’s leading source of economic analysis throughout the coronavirus crisis. Your responses have helped us calculate the £10 billion funding gap charities are experiencing, as well as to estimate that 60,000 jobs may be at risk.

With 5-10 minutes of your time, your contribution will help us tell the government just how much the pandemic has impacted charities like yours.

Help us muster our widest response yet by filling in our survey and then sharing with others before Sunday 2 May when the survey closes.
