1TeamActive

18/05/2021

1Team Active enrolment is now OPEN!

Who is it aimed at?
Sport England has highlighted two groups they would like 1TeamActive to focus on; those who wouldn’t normally be involved in sport and exercise and those who feel that their mental health has suffered due to the demands of policing. So, if you do less than 150 minutes of moderate activity each week and you would like a physical and mental boost to your health, you are the ideal candidate. We know that movement makes people feel happier and healthier and can have life-changing and sustainable benefits to health. Signing up for 1TeamActive will encourage both you and your family to become more active in a fun, supportive and habit-forming way.

What is involved for me and my family?
You and your family will be invited to an initial event day. This day is aimed to be fun, interactive, interesting, friendly and an opportunity to try different activities. You will be given a 1Team Active T-shirt, bag and water bottle so you become and feel part of a team. Following this day, you and your family, alongside others will engage in a 10–12 week activity programme where you will have two classes a week with an instructor. We want you all to achieve at least 150 minutes of activity each week. We will also provide you with an interactive platform to stay in touch with others taking part. This will allow you and your family to share stories, track your activity, challenge yourself, support and motivate others. And it’s all for free!

Will I need to do anything else?
Our ambition, with the help of Sport England and National Lottery funding, is to roll this scheme out nationally to your colleagues. To achieve this we need to measure the pilot scheme and we will seek your help by asking you to complete a few surveys. However tedious these can be, what you have to say really matters and may make a huge difference to police forces across the UK.

Where do I apply?
