Covid-19 Pandemic: Help people with sight loss get active at home #SightLossActive

The Active At Home Programme

Keep fit with BBS’s Active at Home programme!

Our audio-led sessions, developed in collaboration with inclusive providers, have helped blind and partially sighted people keep active from their homes during the pandemic and have continued to be enjoyed by people around the world.

BBS hosts a virtual live workout week at the beginning of each month, with a different exercise class taking place each weekday evening at 6pm. At the end of the workout week, the BBS team upload recordings of the workouts to our YouTube channel for those who were unable to attend. The goal is to do the same class on the same day of the week, every week until the next live workout week to build stamina and increase fitness.

Throughout August, we will be sharing some useful tips and advice to support members, their families and friends to not only enjoy being active at home, but to understand some of the benefits and reasons of physical activity.
