The bikes allow service users who can’t cycle independently the opportunity to be involved and take part in cycling with the support of Everybody Sport and Recreation staff.

Activ8 sessions allow children to try out new activities and let off steam without fear of being judged. Children can play on the specialist soft play equipment and get creative with arts and crafts, supervised by Everybody’s friendly coaches and volunteers.

During the School Holidays Everybody will deliver a range of activities to keep young people engaged and rotate these activities at venues across the borough to enable families to access them.  The holiday programme may include multi-sports such as soft archery, boccia, football etc. Inclusive cycling, indoor climbing and outdoor water based activities to name a few.
