Reds Connect creates new opportunities for local people in the Central Area to engage, participate and connect. It helps address social isolation and loneliness, allowing participants to engender new relationships and enable local people to get active.
Reds Connect is an all-age approach that offers opportunities for men and women of all ages to engage in several activities designed to facilitate all. Physical activity will be at the heart of all sessions albeit gentle exercise, walking or more energetic circuits and football activity. Reds Connect will help participants to reduce feelings of loneliness and social isolation by improving their physical health. The programme is funded through the Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council Central Area Social Isolation Fund. All our Reds Connect sessions are Free of charge to participants.
The aims of Reds Connect are:
- To reduce social isolation and loneliness among local people
- To increase the number of local people in the Central Area participating in local activities
- To improve physical and emotional wellbeing
Our exercise classes are open to adults of any age and gender. There is no need to worry if you haven’t exercised in a while, our delivery staff are able to tailor activities to support individual goals and fitness levels allowing you to develop at your own pace.
Our session allows participants to engage in physical activity in a safe and relaxed environment and participants are encouraged to connect and socialise with each other.
Activities include Circuits, Boxercise, Zumba and much more with participants shaping the delivery on a weekly basis.
Sessions are delivered Tuesday evenings 8 pm-9 pm.
