Quotes from participants:

"I can't believe how a project like Get Healthy, Get Into Sport can change people's lives as much as it has mine. It's given me so much confidence and knowledge about my health and wellbeing. So in my eyes what the Get Healthy Team have done has been fantastic."

"I wouldn't have made such positive changes to my lifestyle on my own. Having the team and mentors there really motivated me to get my lifestyle back on track, helping me to live longer and healthier. Without them I would have drifted through without much commitment."
