Active Devon live chat function on device

Try Our New Live-Chat Function and Get Chatting With Our ‘Active Agents’

During these challenging times, Active Devon is developing different ways to ensure we can provide the most effective support.

One of which, is inspiring and encouraging people to be active at home through the power of a digital conversation.

Can this really work, you may ask? There is only one way to find out, and that is to give Active Agents a try!

Introducing Active Agents

Working with Sport England, we have been exploring new ways of communicating with the people of Devon.

Active Agents is a pioneering and innovative approach, which we are really excited to be launching and trialling.

This live-chat function, enables you to digitally connect directly with us, so that we can help you.

The Active Agents are all members of our very own friendly and supportive Active Devon team. Our Agents are not athletes or world-record holders, but local, helpful and informative people with real lived experience.

Having a Positive Conversation Can Really Help

Good conversation is about the ability to really listen as well as talk.

Through our new live-chat function, we are providing you with the opportunity to have a personalised conversation with us, from the comfort of your home.

The power of positive conversation is an incredible tool. It can help ease the nerves of starting a new activity, address any burning questions or just allow you to discover the best types of activity to do as a family.

What Are the Benefits for Me?

Now more than ever, it is crucial that we all remain active to support our physical and mental wellbeing.

Whilst staying at home, you may be wondering what to do and how to get started? And, when you do try something new it can be quite daunting. Or, you may have questions around how can you best support those around you to keep moving too. 

Chatting to someone who can listen, understand and provide useful information can really help to encourage and inspire you, or point you into the right direction.

How Do I Use Active Agents?

It’s really easy. The chat functionality is on every page of our website (that’s the button in the bottom right corner). Simply click on the icon to start chatting to next available Agent.

If we are offline, we will just ask you to fill in a short form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

So, if you have a computer, tablet or smartphone, what are you waiting for, let’s get chatting!

If you also want to read more about being active at home, head over to our Coronavirus page.

During these strange and challenging times, we believe that:

“Everybody should stay at home and follow the latest government advice, protecting the NHS and saving lives. However, it is also more important than ever that people keep moving, as physical activity is crucial to good health and mental wellbeing. Throughout this crisis, here at Active Devon we’re doing all we can to support you, your family and your community, so that you have the tools and resources to remain active whatever the situation.” #StayInWorkOut
