Volunteers provide an incredible range of support for their communities, and as we find ourselves in a winter lockdown the need for volunteers to support the coronavirus response with services like telephone support and befriending has never been greater.
Even a few minutes of physical activity can bring mental and physical health benefits. Not everyone is comfortable talking about physical activity, so Active Norfolk is hosting two free training courses to help those working in the voluntary sector feel more confident in talking about it.
Whether you’re a regular volunteer or have stepped in to support the coronavirus response, this free training will help you feel confident in talking about exercise and in supporting residents in their community with their health and wellbeing.
The course covers practical elements such as conversation starters, how to recommend physical activity, and ideas and resources to signpost to amongst others.
The sessions will be held virtually on Thursday 11th February 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. and Wednesday 10th March 1:30 – 3:00 p.m.
