Sheffield Council take decisive action to make leisure activities more affordable and friendly for women from many different backgrounds. Reduced costs, transport, and child care are the most crucial areas of support identified by busy women in the interviews conducted. We travel with them to the countryside where the women sample a range of outdoor sports and activities.
