Vision Sports Academy CIC were commissioned by the National Lottery to deliver a project providing a pro-health experience for the entire family. We delivered a new family and community-focused weekly session which promoted exercise, and physical activity opportunities for residents living in Birmingham.
Family Fun Club provided a 'one stop shop' approach to physical activity, offering multiple physical activities which were simultaneously accessible to families at a community venue within their area. Family Fun Club encouraged parents to join their children in our activities; serving as role models for their children and vice versa, additionally, they would derive the benefits of good health through their participation.
Under the project, our overarching objectives were focused on:
  • Creating stronger communities
  • Enabling healthier and more active people and communities
  • Providing people with better life chances
