Coronavirus (COVID-19) resources
Browse our resources to help you keep active, eat well and look after your wellbeing if you're self-isolating and staying at home
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, many people will be at home in self-isolation. We want to support people during these challenging times and are compiling resources that may be helpful for you.
We'll be adding more resources as we can on:
- keeping active in the house
- eating healthily when your food cupboards are less well stocked
- staying entertained and in a good mental state
- how to entertain children
Keep on moving
Matt Lambert, our Health Information Officer, says:
"It can be hard for us to keep moving when we're not doing all our normal activities or going to gyms. We'll share activities for a range of age groups, including older people, that can be done around the home."
Top tips to make standing a habit and encourage you to take regular breaks from being inactive.
Stretches to help improve and maintain flexibility.
Train your muscles for everyday tasks such as carrying shopping bags.
Matt has designed a full workout that can be done at home with no gym equipment.

We have a dedicated website for children called Great Grub Club, which has lots of fun things to make and do, plus activities and fun factsheets to download.
