Tackling Inactivity in Colleges

Bury College is proud to be one of the few colleges in the country to be selected to deliver a Sport England Tackling Inactivity Project.  We support students who are currently inactive and build their confidence and competence to lead more active, healthy lifestyles.

We currently have a strong focus on helping students who may identify as having low mental health. We work closely with these students to show the benefits that physical activity can have on mental health and help them become more physically active.
