Girls Get Active & Aware in Fife

 The aim of the 'Active and Aware' progrmme is to support young women, particularly those with low self-confidence and poor self-esteem to be more physically active by:

 

  • identifying and recognising the links between low mood, low self-esteem and physical activity in young women;

  • identifying ways to support young women to be more active by addressing barriers; and 

  • focusing on issues surrounding body image, cigarettes, alcohol, sexual health and politics and citizenship.

There were five weeks of activities designed to make progress on working with others; personal development and having an active mind and body.
