The b-active women project has now come to an end. 

We were originally due to run for 3 years, but due to the success of the project, were able to actually run for neary 5 years! 

Over the time of the project, we engaged with over 8,200 women, who between them took part in sport / physical activity nearly 94,000 times! 

Thank you to all those that took part and made the project a success! 

Are you from the Braunstone and Rowley Fields area?? You can still access free sport and physical activity sessions through our new project. Go to for more info!


The instructors through b-active women have inspired me to take part and find time for myself, which has been extremely difficult. I have tried many times to find a group that is right for me, and now I think I have!!

I really enjoyed the b-active women learn to swim lessons, they have also built up a bit of confidence in me too, hence why I have now signed up to the next level of Improvers lessons. Once again, many thanks!

It is so nice to take part in a session that has so many different ages and abilities, and not all young people who are brilliant at everything! I feel so at ease in these sessions, that’s why I come every week!
