Women and girls - sport and physical activity

Many women don't take part in sport and exercise because of fear of judgement. To change this, we've partnered up with the This Girl Can campaign.

This Girl Can campaign

The campaign is led by Sport England to celebrate active women everywhere and to prove that whatever your size, ability or previous experience, sport can be a fun and enjoyable part of your life.

You can find more information on the campaign here.

Follow the campaign on Twitter @thisgirlcanUK (use the hashtag #thisgirlcan) and like us on Facebook.

If you have any questions, contact us.

How to get active

Locally fewer women than men take part in sport, with only 29% of females taking part in 1 x 30 mins of sport per week, compared to 40% of males (APS10, 2016). Pro-Active Southwark would like to change this and support the 65% of local females who want to do more sport to become more active.

To find out what sport and physical activity sessions are on offer for females, visit Get Active London.
