Physical Activity Champion programme

The Physical Activity Champions programme is a partnership between Wakefield Council and NHS Wakefield District that promotes the benefits of physical activity and exercise and encourages individuals, groups and communities in becoming more active, more often.

We are currently recruiting volunteers from within the Wakefield district to ‘champion’ the benefits of physical activity to share your own experiences and to support individuals, groups and communities in becoming more physically active.

Your local community is looking for you if:

  • physical activity or sport has helped changed your life
  • you can you motivate others to change their activity levels
  • there is a secret to your success that you can pass on to others

The emphasis will be on supporting the participants to get involved, building their skills and confidence and allow them to get the most out of the sessions.

If you think Physical Activity Champions is for you or you would like to know more about the programme, please call 01924 307811 or email us at activators@wakefield.gov.uk  ​
