This Girl Can

This Girl Can Birmingham celebrates women getting active, however, and whenever suits them

What is This Girl Can?

Launched in 2015, This Girl Can is a national campaign from Sport England, that aims to get more women active, and feeling confident to do so.

The campaign strongly believes that it’s important that women get active in a way that suits them- no matter what that looks like, or how sweaty they get!

Being active looks different for everyone, and we want to celebrate women and girls of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities who get active- to inspire others to get involved too.

The Active Wellbeing Society is one of Sport England’s official delivery partners for This Girl Can. We are pleased to offer a range of This Girl Can sessions during the pandemic, and would love for you to join us and take part.
