Child playing

Playtime at your local childrens centre

Families with new babies can get health advice and support, as well as try a range of classes at their local childrens centre.

There are 18 venues across the city offering free and low-cost services and activities for little ones.

These include child health clinics, baby groups, breastfeeding groups, antenatal and postnatal groups.

All of the centres also have family support teams who work with children and young people from birth to the age of 19.

They also provide activities and support in areas including disability, mental health, emotional wellbeing and school attendance.

Beat The Street

Are you ready to Beat the Street?

A six-week interactive game aimed at encouraging children and their families to be more active has been launched.

The Beat the Street challenge will run for six weeks to encourage people to walk, cycle or jog as far as possible.

Participants need to pick up a special card from GP practices, libraries and leisure centres and can use it on more than 200 interactive 'Beat Boxes' placed on lampposts throughout the city centre. The more boxes tapped, the further you have travelled and the greater the chance of winning a prize.

Raising awareness about bowel cancer

April marked Bowel Cancer Awareness Month with a focus on the importance of screening. Screening can save lives but at the moment in some areas of the UK only a third of those who receive a test complete it. 

Screening can detect bowel cancer at an early stage in people with no symptoms, when it is easier to treat. Sometimes it can prevent bowel cancer from developing in the first place by picking up non-cancerous growths (polyps) which could become cancerous in the future.

Staying safe on our roads

More than 12,000 primary school children across the city have taken part in Nottinghams Road Safety Quiz, to introduce children to road safety issues in a fun and interactive way and help them cope with a variety of traffic situations when out and about.

The quiz also provides the City Council with an opportunity to monitor the knowledge levels of children and to offer appropriate interventions to address any shortcomings to help to reduce risks. This quiz helps drive down casualty rates and reduces avoidable injuries on Nottingham roads which contribute to the national casualty reduction statistics.

Your chance to try a new sport!

Former Nottingham Forest and England footballer Viv Anderson has helped to launch FREEsport, a free project to give Nottingham adults the chance to try a new sport or improve their existing skills.

FREEsport sessions include archery, badminton, tennis and netball and will be on offer at city leisure centres and parks until March 2017, with extra sports such as Rusty Returners football, VX (a cross between dodgeball and lacrosse) and ptanque available until Sunday 19 June.

The sessions are for Nottingham residents aged 16 or over and will take place at various times, including evenings, on different days of the week to give as many people as possible chance to join in. Learn or Return events have been designed for beginners and people who havent played for some time, while Sport Club Led sessions will encourage people to get regularly involved through a sports club. And prizes will be on offer for completing eight, 15 and 25 sessions.

Local help for people with autism

Local autistic people and their families have launched the volunteer-run Nottinghamshire branch of the National Autistic Society.

The branch started out as Autistic Nottingham and East Midlands, a small self-help and campaigning group. Theyve been working with the National Autistic Society to expand and are now becoming a branch of the charity so they can support more autistic people and their families.

The branch will continue to run an adult social group and are creating a second group for parents which they hope to launch in early October.
