You need to be referred by your GP or practice nurse. Once you are referred you will be contacted by one of the Active for Life team who will arrange an appointment with a scheme advisor. They will discuss with you the different exercise options that are open to you and you will be able to choose which sessions you would like to attend.
After the twelve week programme you will attend a final appointment with a scheme advisor and they will discuss opportunities to be more active in the long term and in addition be offered a discounted rate to continue to exercise in the leisure centre. This includes free access for the over-65s to the gyms, swimming pools and classes on weekdays between 9am-5pm. Visit our Sports and Leisure page for a list of participating leisure centres.
