Supporting Family Activity Providers

At Hoop, we work with 15,000+ family activity providers. Most of these are small businesses, often run by parents, who will face a lot of uncertainty over the coming weeks as we practise social distancing.

To help families over this time, lots activity providers have temporarily taken their activities online – we encourage you to show your support by taking part in live streams, watching pre-recorded sessions and sending messages of support to your local favourites.

Below are some of the resources produced to help keep your family active. You can find info about live streams of family activities in the Hoop app.
