Since the start of the pandemic, Kent Sport has awarded more than £200,000 of Sport England funds to community sport and physical activity organisations, to help them keep communities active through lockdown.
KentSport are supporting older adults and people with health condidtions to improve mobility, flexibility and balance through working with a new low impact exercise programme called Paracise.
Young Onset Dementia project is best demonstrated by the three short video clips which have been produced demonstrating the benefits and impact that the sessions have had on participants and their families/carers below:
Get Active is a unique sport and physical activity programme focussing on young people from high areas of deprivation. We worked together with the local housing association Golding Homes to create an activity programme that would work for the individual and their community, and looked to address some ongoing issues highlighted by local residents such as: nuisance behaviours; lack of pride in their community and the barriers that their location provides.
Kent & Medway Business Games aims to engage businesses and employees, in order to encourage team working, boost staff morale, promote & increase participation in different types of sports/activities and enable networking opportunities with other workplace teams in Kent.
Working in partnership with Canterbury Christ Church University, Kent Sport enabled students to design and deliver the training to 103 young leaders who then assisted in delivering the School Games.
