Girls Empowered and Inspired To Help Peers To Be More Active

Created 5 months ago, updated 5 months ago

Girls Active is an award-winning programme developed by children’s charity the Youth Sport Trust and delivered in partnership with Women in Sport. Thanks to continued funding from the Department for Communities through Sport Northern Ireland as part of the ‘Active Fit and Sporty’ project, the Girls Active programme has continued to expand each year with up to 30 schools now receiving support from the Youth Sport Trust through Girls Active.

The Girls Active Inspiration Day has returned for its third year in Northern Ireland to grow a budding network of girls who are inspired to become role models and leaders - encouraging their peers to become more physically active.

To date, the programme has successfully engaged 3,000 girls across 30 post-primary schools in partnership with Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, and Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council to improve attitudes towards PE and physical activity so girls can lead more physically active lifestyles
