Children & Young People

We support the 251 Primary Schools, 21 Junior Schools and 37 Secondary Schools in Cumbria with their PE & School Sport helping to tackle the rising levels of obesity in Cumbria through whole school approaches.

We are committed to providing opportunities for young people to get involved in sport and physical activity, not only as participants but also as coaches, leaders and volunteers.

Active Cumbria believes that sport and physical activity can have a huge positive impact on the lives of Children & Young People.
