In November 2021, ukactive and the This Girl Can campaign collaborated to publish a practical guide, "How to improve your services for women and girls: As told by the 51%", based on research that was commissioned to better understand the experiences of women and girls using fitness and leisure facilities. The purpose of the guide was to help facilities create a more welcoming environment for women and girls and it covered a variety of issues that women identified as barriers to being active in this environment. 

The key findings of this research are included in this new guidance along with recommendations on how to create a safe environment for women. Although many gyms and leisure centres have already taken steps to ensure women feel safer within their facilities, the report authors wanted to ensure the guidance covered all aspects of what women shared with them about their experiences and therefore this guide covers a range of advice, from basic to more complex steps.
