Make Your Move

'Make Your Move' is a 4-year project that focuses on getting people back into physical activity after their recent move.

The project offers a free 2-month membership at a local leisure facility (subject to availability) which enables you to use their facilities as much as you like. If leisure centres aren’t of interest to you, we are also able to link you with other activities that you are interested in or might like to try. We can contribute to the cost or fully fund them for a set period. Examples of what other participants have done include, going on daily walks with a walking group or running with a local athletics club.

The project originally focused on Norwich but has spread out around Norfolk over the past 3 years working with leisure partners in South Norfolk, North Norfolk, Breckland and most recently West Norfolk. 

As a housing provider, we recognise that there is often pressure and worries when you are moving which can put sport and physical activity very low on a person's agenda even if this is something they had previously enjoyed. We want help with this to give you the chance to get back into something you enjoy.

Make Your Move is funded by the Sport England Core Market Fund which focuses on life changes that may result in people becoming less physically active.

The scheme can be accessed by anyone aged 18 or over who have recently moved or are moving whether through social or private housing. Residents will have an income of less than £1,500 per month or be claiming Housing Benefit or Universal Credit.

Participants can self refer, even if they just want to know more about the project by calling or emailing the project team. Participants referred by other housing organisations and professionals will already have had a referral form completed.
