Get Set Leeds?
Coronavirus and Get Set Leeds (Updated 4th January 2021)
As everyone is spending more time at home, it is increasingly important to help people stay active to maintain good physical activity levels and also to support mental wellbeing.
Leeds is currently under national lockdown restrictions due to the Coronavirus pandemic. You can leave your home to exercise but this should be limited to once per day and you should not travel outside your local area.
You can exercise in a public outdoor place:
- by yourself
- with the people you live with
- with your support bubble (if you are legally permitted to form one)
- in a childcare bubble where providing childcare
- or, when on your own, with 1 person from another household
Indoor gyms and sports facilities will remain closed. Outdoor sports courts, outdoor gyms, golf courses, outdoor swimming pools, archery/driving/shooting ranges and riding arenas must also close. Organised outdoor sport for disabled people can continue.
What is Get Set Leeds?
Imagine if Leeds was the most active city in the UK – how would things be different?
Get Set Leeds is a partnership of people from all over the city who want to play a part in making Leeds more active. People just like you. People who know it feels good to be active, but don’t always find it easy to make it happen every day. People with great ideas for changes that could get everyone in Leeds moving more.
Last year, we asked people to share with us their ideas for being physically active in Leeds, and thousands of you told us what changes in the city would enable them to be more active.
After working together with Leeds Beckett University to analyse these results, we are delighted to share our findings with you.
We know that being active is good for our own health, good for communities and good for the city as a whole. And we know our city already offers lots of opportunities to get active. But together we can do so much more. Together, we can make Leeds the best city to be active in the UK.
