The Find Your Active ambassadors are all supporters of the Find Your Active campaign. It is our hope that their stories will inspire you to get involved in physical activity and see why they are so passionate about positive movement. As well as this, they are helping to promote physical activity opportunities available in your local communities and support you in finding the activity that is right for you.

To help give you some support, if you’re new to activity, don’t know where to start or just need a helping hand. You can find your active with us! Our local community connectors are here throughout the county to offer this support.

Find Your Active with us!
