The My Family Moves is a project funded by Sport England’s Families Fund, which aims to get more families across the UK active and participating in sport and physical activity together.

We are excited to be working with leisure centres in Salford and Knowsley to trial new ways to support single parent families to take part in sport in ways which work for them to help make leisure centre more accessible for single parent families.

We’re campaigning for single parents to be fairly represented and treated equally in society, including the leisure sector.

Single parents often face barriers to access sport and physical activity such as pricing and timetabling. In 2019 we produced and sent out our ‘Sport & You’ survey, with the aim to gather insight into the lived experiences of single parents facing such barriers, and the ways in which we can campaign to change this.

You can sign up here to receive email updates on the campaign and information on how you and your family can get involved.
