'She Can Be Active Wiltshire' is our brand new county-wide network created to support women in Wiltshire & Swindon to overcome barriers to being physically active.
She Can Be Active Wiltshire aims to do this through:
- Creating local 'She Can Be Active' Networks where women feel safe to share their experiences of physical activity and be active together
- Working with physical activity providers to develop activities which tackle the 'enjoyment gap' and reflect what women want
- Sharing personal stories, learning, and insight from local 'She Can Be Active' Networks to inspire women to be active and develop greater understanding of barriers facing women in Wiltshire & Swindon
Join Your Local Network
She Can Be Active Wiltshire will work alongside local networks created to provide safe spaces for women to share their experiences of physical activity. This collaborative approach will aim to close the enjoyment gap through understanding and challenging the practical and structural obstacles that make physical activity less welcoming for women.

Health and Wellbeing Manager
It is my role to implement and monitor a Health & Wellbeing Strategy for the county, engaging with relevant strategic partners to support shared outcomes. The Strategy will support and develop health and wellbeing activities and physical activity programmes to tackle inequalities based on both individual and community need. I also lead a number of community development and engagement projects such as in our role as Local Strategic Partner for the Get Out Get Active programme, Age UK Wiltshire, Park Yoga, and Sport England's Together Fund to help community organisations reduce the negative impact of coronavirus and the widening of the inequalities in sport and physical activity.
Personal interests: keeping active by running, gym, and paddleboarding. I love encouraging my boys to be active and providing them with lots of different activities and opportunities. We enjoy long family walks and swimming together.
