While it remains impossible to deliver our work in the community in person during the COVID-19 lockdown, The Nest and its staff have been both supporting efforts to aid vulnerable people during the crisis and keep the community engaged while they #StayAtHome.
The Nest supports the Canaries COVID-19 Community Support Project, set up by Norwich City Football Club and the Community Sports Foundation to help people in Norfolk to respond and recover from the crisis.
As well as volunteering for the project, through the Foundation, we continue to develop ways to keep our participants and the wider community active, connected, and engaged.
Support includes exercise and training ideas, as well as resources for parents while schools are closed.
Many of these provisions are available from the Foundation’s #StayAtHome app.
Elsewhere, our Run for Me mental health running group, which usually use our facilities weekly here at The Nest, are using an app to stay connected and track their runs.
