New Project Launched To Get Mums Active in Telford!

running 028

Energize have recently set up a project named ‘Mumability’ aiming to increase the amount of women and girls participating in sport and physical activity and to empower them to take up coaching an leadership positions. Energize are working with primary schools and community groups (e.g. Couch 2 5k) to start up sessions to get, primarily, mums of any age active in their day to day life. Running has been the main activity which we have received interest for, but any sport/activity can be set up as long as it is helping people get physically active!

The project is exclusively running in the Telford & Wrekin Local Authority area and we are aiming to set up at least 6 groups by March 2017.

The Process


I’m a mum/coach/school and would love to set up a project near me! 

Great! The first step is to contact Elliot at Energize (details below) who will provide you with more information and support to set up your project.

I am not/I don’t know anyone qualified to run the sessions, is this an issue?

Not at all! Energize can either find you a coach or can help you acquire a coaching qualification so you can deliver them yourselves.

What support is available from Energize?

Energize offer one to one tailored project support through the Women Make Coaching programme.

Is any funding available?

Some funding is available to provide a helping hand with setting your project up. Funding is also available for 1 qualification per group.

If you have any questions please contact Elliot Pottinger, Customer Relationship Manager at Energize
