Programmes to get you active in your local area

Regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. To stay healthy, it is recommended that we participate in physical activity for at least 150 minutes per week. Every 10 minutes of movement matters!

The benefits of increasing your levels of physical activity are endless but it can help to:

  • Control your weight
  • Reduce the risk of long term health conditions such as Cardiovascular disease, cancers and type 2 diabetes
  • Strengthen your bones and muscles
  • Improve your mood and increase self esteem
  • Meet new friends and socialise
  • Improve your mental health and keep the brain active
  • Increase chances of living longer
