We have two options ... book training as an individual or commission training as a group/team.
We run individual training sessions throughout the year.

If you work for an organisation or a team who could benefit from our Ambassador training consider commissioning a bespoke training session.

Background to the This Mum Moves Project
Pilot & Evaluation Phase
In 2018 ukactive together with several national partners, supported by National Lottery and Sport England funding, launched the This Mum Moves project. The project aimed to support women to continue to enjoy and benefit from an active lifestyle during their childbearing years by enabling healthcare professionals to promote physical activity within routine care. Resources and training materials were developed through a Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) approach involving professionals, pregnant women, and new mothers. The ensuing educational programme set out to improve the physical activity knowledge, skills, and confidence of midwives and health visitors specifically.
During the three-year project, This Mum Moves worked with NHS trusts, in five pilot sites, to deliver training to over 400 healthcare professionals.
Following the training,
85% of healthcare professionals were ‘committed’ or ‘highly committed’ to apply what they had learned into practice
81% felt confident to start a conversation about physical activity
76% reported that they ‘often’ or ‘always’ provided physical activity advice
97% of healthcare professionals said they would recommend the training to a friend or colleague.
