ActivNess aims to Break Down Barriers, Build Confidence, and Empower People.
Reducing the financial barrier is one of the ways we would like to help people access recreational activities within our community, allowing everyone to experience the same opportunities no matter what their financial situation.
ActivNess would like to create an Activity Equipment Library. We believe this would be a valuable service that would allow community members to try new activities without the burden of purchasing the equipment beforehand.
There are many free activity opportunities and facilities available in our area such as sports fields, skate parks, basketball and tennis courts, however, a lot require equipment to make use of them. We would like to offer a range of basic sports equipment to those who wish to participate in these activities but are unable to, or would rather not, purchase and store equipment they may not use again or only use occasionally.
We would also like to be able to offer a range of exercise equipment to community members looking to improve their health and wellbeing through exercise.
The Activity Equipment Library will be open to anyone living within the Highland Region.
- We want to create a Community Activity Equipment Library in Inverness.
- To increase the accessibility of recreational opportunities for all members of the community.
- To help reduce the financial barrier for people wishing to participate in recreational activities.
- To help improve the health and wellbeing of community members.
- To help increase the use of local facilities.
- To provide donators with an innovative route to recycle sports, exercise, and activity goods.
- To have a positive impact on our environment.
If you would like to donate any sports, exercise, or activity equipment to the library, please complete the donation form here.
Any donated items unsuitable for the library will be put up for sale to help with the running costs of the project.
We promise we will try to repair and refurbish donated items where possible, and to responsibly process unuseable items for recycling or as a last option, disposal.
