Jersey Sport was formed as the independent body for the development of sport and active living in Jersey, in June 2017 – as an arms-length organisation supported by the Government of Jersey. We are also a registered charity.
Jersey Sport’s key priority is to support the development of sport in Jersey, and to encourage islanders to play, support, volunteer and coach in sport.
Move More Jersey, created by Jersey Sport in May 2019, is a key strategic theme in the Inspiring an Active Jersey Strategy to improve mental and physical health.
Improving mental and physical health through physical activity is a key priority for the Government of Jersey, and so Move More Jersey aims to encourage more islanders to be more active, more often.
Move More Referral is a 12-week programme of exercise for people in Jersey. It’s for Islanders aged 16 or over with, or at risk of, certain medical conditions or pre/post surgery and is run by specially-trained fitness instructors.
Participants must be referred by either a doctor or a health care professional to get a place on the scheme.
