#EasierToBeActive: CIMSPA supports new physical activity campaign


#EasierToBeActive is a new physical activity campaign set-up in March and run by the National Centre for Sport & Exercise Medicine and Sheffield Hallam University.

CIMSPA is supporting the campaign to help make it easier for people with health conditions to be active and stay active.

The campaign is set to host a national conversation for anyone with a passion for empowering and inspiring those of us with health conditions to be active. Through their national online workshop they will be holding en-masse conversations where everyone can share their ideas, and read, comment and vote on the ideas of others, all anonymously.

Tara Dillon, CEO at CIMSPA said, “Nobody’s life should lack physical activity just of underlying health conditions. We can find ways to include physical activity in their lives and get more people more active.

“This is especially important during the current Covid-19 outbreak when going out is almost impossible for those with serious health conditions. We should strengthen all resources available and this research will allow us to do exactly that. It’s important to get everybody involved in the national conversation surrounding physical activity.”
Professor Rob Copeland, Director and Dr Anna Lowe, Programme Manager at #EasierToBeActive commented, “We need to work together better to improve the interactions people with health conditions have within the sport and physical activity sector. Together we will empower people with health conditions to get active, stay active, and improve their quality of living.”

Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article, Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them
