Exercise on Referral is a programme designed to enable GP’s and other professionals to refer people who were previously sedentary or inactive and have existing health conditions or other factors that put them at increased risk of ill health, into physical activity.

The programme provides an appropriate range of physical activity options enabling participants to work towards long term lifestyle change and take control of their own health. The activities are provided in a safe and effective environment with fully qualified staff.

We are proud to be leading an exciting new Active for Life programme which has just launched in Basildon, Brentwood and Thurrock that will support over 200 cancer patients to live healthier, more active lifestyles.
