About

Real Time Community Projects 

Mission 

To activate the bodies, minds and hearts of people in the community. To open the door and opportunity to care, connect and flourish as humans.  To ignite engaging, fulfilling, enjoyable projects that become platforms where all can contribute and make a difference!

Real Time Community Projects Vision

For community to drive the projects based on a can do, want to do, love to do approach, that feeds the ‘feel good’ ‘do good’ of wellbeing.

Where the projects become self sustaining, owned by no-one, engaged by everyone.

Where the combined effort to achieve the outcome,  builds an unconditional connection, respect, appreciation and acceptance of each other.

Real Time Community Projects LogoWho are we and what do we do?

We are a team of people who are primarily volunteers (see more about us below), who together with other active members of the community, volunteer their time and energy to projects that make a difference to the lives of others and the environments we engage.

While Real Time Community Projects is registered as a business, it is a Social Business with a community and wellbeing purpose and mission.

WE aim to sustain the projects without relying on excessive funds to keep them moving.

We aim to keep things simple, so they flow and move naturally with the community they attract.

We services a range of causes, and are continually building our connections.

Kevin Littler

Keep Moving Lifestyle 

Kevin is an experienced physiotherapist and personal trainer, whose main passion is helping others improve their physical health and fitness so that people are only limited by what they want to do rather than what they can do.  Living by the mantra “Do whatever you can with whatever you have got”, he believes that whether you are bed-bound or an elite athlete, everyone CAN do something today that helps them get closer to where they want to be physically, or if you are in a happy place physically then there is something you can do today to keep you there!

Being an accredited nutrition coach as well, he is qualified to not only help you make improved nutrition choices but more importantly help you find ways of eating better that you feel you can do forever.

Acknowledging he can only help a limited number of people live healthier, more satisfying lives, he now spends lot of his time teaching the next generation of fitness leaders – knowing that he can influence the health and happiness of many more people through his past students than he can alone. But he still finds time to help individuals find their ideal lifestyle through customfitphysio.com.

When not helping others to live healthy lives or teaching he can usually be found running after his five active children – who in turn are his greatest teachers in life. Thank you Kevin for volunteering your insights on the Keep Moving Lifestyle project.
