Tips to get your family into life

With a few pointers from the tips below, you and your family could get more out of every day. Or, try some of our challenges to really get things rolling!


  • Often our lives get so busy it's hard to find time to connect with other like-minded people. If you're not already, try to set up a monthly play group with a few friends who might be going through similar challenges as you are. The kids can play and you can catch up on all the news.

  • Looking to join a community group or club? Check out what's on offer through ACT Communities Online.

  • Looking for a community or sporting group for you and your family to join is one way to meet new people with similar interest to yours. Check out ACT Communities Online to see if there is a group that suits your family.

  • There are lots of ways you can help your community, like delivering meals to those in need, reading books to children, or door-to-door collecting for charity. Volunteering ACT has great ideas on where to start.

  • Rediscover classic playground games with your kids, like hide-and-seek, follow the leader, stuck in the mud, or tip/tag games.
