What is Family Time?

‘Family Time’ is an exciting project aimed at increasing opportunities for families to be active together.  

The goal? To encourage families to sit less and move more, aiming for at least 60 minutes of exercise every day for lifelong participation in physical activity and promote positive wellbeing for the families in our community.

After all the stresses and strains, which often come with Christmas, it's no surprise that after the festive period we can sometimes find ourselves feeling, well... a little bit drained not just physically but mentally too.

With that in mind, Family Time have created what we think is the perfect family challenge to push the reset button so you're ready to face the New Year with renewed confidence and a positive mind-set!
