Petition Action

Open grassroots sports activities for children and young people during lockdowns

Petition Details

Keep all grassroots sports facilities open, indoor and outdoor, for children and young people during lockdowns for the sake of their mental health and well-being.

Additional Information

Organised sports activities have played a huge part in the lives of children and young people. Facilities have ensured the highest level of cleanliness, hygiene and santisation as well ensuring social distancing throughout. We feel they should be allowed to continue to participate in their organised sports activities e.g. gymnastics, trampolining, dance etc. Strong evidence exists showing a 20-30% reduction in depression in individuals who participate in physical activity daily.
