Back to Activities

Living Sport is a charity working to improve the health, happiness and wellbeing of the people of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough by inspiring them to get active. They support people and organisations on the ground that deliver, influence, and inspire others to be active.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • Volunteering in sports and physical activity – supports people to connect with others, give back to their community and meet new friends
  • Taking part in sports and physical activity not only improves peoples physical health it also improves mental wellbeing, it can improve self esteem, confidence and a sense of purpose.
  • Getting involved in physical activity helps manage low mood, stress and anxiety

‘I found the sessions helped me to both unwind and be more aware of my posture and negative thoughts… My sleep pattern has improved as a result… I felt more relaxed for the rest of the day.’Walks for Mindfulness. Read more stories here.

Living Sport do not run sessions themselves but rather work with local clubs and organisations to support them to run activities. They facilitate many programmes in their  Active Partnership role, with funding from Sport England (National Lottery). With their events programme, sponsorship opportunities and other workplace activity initiatives, they have an ambition to develop a sustainable funding model that will allow them to do even more.

Living Sport also manages Cambs Open Space, a website that provides information about the county’s parks and open spaces. This website aims to engage and encourage residents and visitors to make more of the valuable local space and visit parks they may not have previously explored.

They are always exploring new connections to further develop their inclusive, diverse and innovative sport and physical activity offer, and encourage you to make contact if you would like to achieve something great with their support.

Living Sport offer some online free training, alongside advice/promotion for Sport Organisations. See their website for details.
