ReEngage is a free digital platform, providing online learning and skills development in four key areas, designed to ensure that everyone providing sport and physical activity services has the knowledge and confidence to engage with all members of their community:

  • Awareness of the prevalence, impact and treatment of long Covid
  • Engaging effectively with inactive adults with no pre-existing health conditions
  • Communicating with customers, especially those who may be lacking the confidence to return to physical activity
  • Awareness of the aspects of ageing that can be controlled or influenced through physical activity
