Potential participants will be identified and referred by health professionals, community support workers, social workers, schools, Early Help practitioners, police and others. Participants will be offered a Volunteer Mentor to support them in accessing the activities – shown where the activities are – how to book - who to ask for help – someone to exercise with – the support of others in the group and, importantly, the support of those who have lived experience of the issues they are suffering. Successful referrals will be given 6 months funded membership to access our Assisted Exercise Studio, in a small group environment. In addition the participant will be able to use the swimming pool during public sessions, and some exercise classes (Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi for example) for further exercise options

What we'll deliver:

  • 50 - FIT Together 6 Month Memberships

Why it's a great idea:

Exercise is proven to improve a sense of well-being and can cause significant health improvements: Socially inclusive activities – developing friendships – support others – a sense of self-worth – lead to other community activities outside of the Centre. Participants may become mentors for future participants – can become a volunteer on the programme as the project continues.

Steps to get it done:

  • Receive referrals from health professionals.
  • Meet for informal chat and welcome
  • Create individual exercise and social programme
  • Mentor and support participant to help achieve goals
