Future Fit for Business Announces Collaboration with Kidztivity

Future Fit for Business has joined forces with Kidztivity to support ukactive’s newly published and revised Children and Young People in Leisure Facilities Guidance for the sector, focusing on children aged 10 years and above (10 years +). 

Kidztivity are a leading children’s training and programme provider with over 25 years of industry and sector expertise and innovative delivery. Future Fit for Business has collaborated with Kidztivity to promote the new guidelines for children and young people in leisure settings by producing a free 30-minute e-learning guidance, which will ultimately help teams and facilities provide positive experiences, increase access and retention, and get more children and young people active.

The e-learning was designed to provide a clear overview of the changes in guidance and to support organisations with implementing them. This includes equipment, staff ratios, insurance, pre-screening, safeguarding and most importantly, practical guidance on types of activity within the gym and group exercise environment.

The newly published and revised guidance from ukactive aims to help fitness, health and leisure providers to understand and deliver effective strategies in health and wellbeing, specifically for ages 10 years and above. Developed in collaboration with sector specialists and industry experts, the new guidance is part of achieving a wider national approach to physical activity for children and young people.

Chris Sharman, Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Kidztivity said:

We know physical activity has a significant role in young people’s health and wellbeing, though as a sector we need to be better prepared and equipped to deliver on meaningful experiences, social connection, and improved health for young people. The new Children and Young People in Leisure Facilities Guidance is a tremendous step in providing organisations and facilities with the resources and advice to make this a reality. We’re proud to be a part of this movement to create the best conditions for teens to thrive and ultimately get more teens active.”

Both Future Fit and Kidztivity are invested in this essential movement towards creating conditions for children and young people to become more active and healthy, allowing their overall development to be strengthened and supported. Assisting organisations to deploy the very best settings for children and young people to stay physically active will help make this a reality.

Rob Johnson, Managing Director of Future Fit for Business said:

The new guidance from ukactive is a step forward in improving the health and physical activity opportunities for children and young people. Future Fit are proud to collaborate with Kidiztivity on this important initiative and our shared goal of supporting organisations in creating an environment that promotes young people’s overall health and wellbeing.”
