The half term holiday has been used as a reminder that Joy of Moving activities have been adapted for families to take part in at home. In early 20202 the Joy of Moving programme – Ferrero’s unbranded CSR project delivered through a charity partnership with EFL Trust and our network of Club Community Organisations (CCO) - was adapted to support families up and down the country during a time where it became more challenging to remain active. Brentford FC Community Sports Trust was among those that encourages local families to get involved
Traditionally, the unbranded Joy of Moving Programme, which consists of the Move and Learn project and the Festivals, is delivered face-to-face in schools. However, with multiple national and regional lockdowns meaning schools faced closure for many children in the last year, the programme introduced a new digital approach. This was to ensure that families and schools could continue to support young people at a time where face-to-face delivery was not possible.
The Joy of Moving online resource hub was launched and has more than 50 free games based on the unique Joy of Moving methodology. The hub makes the activities easily accessible for parents to do with their children while inspiring them on how they can keep their family moving right from home. The games are also easily adaptable with variations that families can do both indoors and outdoors in their garden.
The half term holiday has been on in most areas for the past week. This acted as a reminder that the Joy of Moving programme can support families at home if the weather is bad outside. See more below.
Thanks to the positive response to our digital programme, the Joy of Moving online resource hub will remain in place and be updated regularly with new games, so that families can access these freely. You can find them all on joyofmovingresourcehub.co.uk. Share your fun moments through #JoyofMoving.
