Whats Your Move

This is for Barnsley, by Barnsley.

What’s Your Move believes that everyone can find a move that will help them to be more active in everyday life and help improve physical and mental health.


It’s all about encouraging everyone in Barnsley to find their move and experience the benefits of being active by:


  • Understanding that everyone is different and being active is different for everyone.
  • Using the power of social media to show the different ways people in Barnsley are being active.
  • Providing a website to help point people in the direction of where they can find their move.
  • Barnsley people leading the way by sharing their stories and encouraging each other through social media, friendship groups, workplaces and our Ambassador Programme.


One of the most important parts of the WHAT’S YOUR MOVE campaign is about Champions promoting how they are active and helping other people to find their move.


These stories help people to see others who are like them and really bring it to life.
