Many children and young people growing up in South Yorkshire do not undertake the required hours of physical activity essential to a healthy childhood. With reduction in funding and time for physical education in school, this situation is exacerbated, leaving many in situations of physical and mental ill health. Some children living in disadvantaged communities no longer have access to physical activity close to home. This is simply not good enough.
As you read this today, we are part of the first generation in many generations where our own children will have a shorter life expectancy than ourselves. For those living in poverty, the gap is close to 10 years in comparison to the life expectancy of their more affluent peers . We simply must do something to reverse this tsunami of inequity and we at Active Fusion are fully focused on doing exactly that.
Active Fusion relies on the generosity of individuals, businesses and organisations to continue to change this situation for children and their families. With your help, we can keep our promise of giving children and young people the opportunities to be the best they can be.
Creating a healthier, happier community is at the heart of what we do. Since becoming a registered charity in 2018, our team of dedicated employees and trustees have been supporting children, young people and families to make positive changes to their lives.
