Getting Active

Activity and information sessions for all the family, fun activities, play sessions, outdoor activity, walking for Health and more.

Exercise and keeping active are an important aspect of having positive health and wellbeing

 

Please note our face-to-face sessions are on hold following Covid-19 social distancing guidelines.

We provide activity and information sessions for all the family, physical activities, information about your body and what is needed to lead a happy healthy life. You can make changes, big or small, to be more active.

Exercise has so many benefits such as reducing blood pressure, cholesterol and keeping your weight maintained. Not only that, there is strong evidence that shows taking in some regular activity really does keep you mentally feeling well too... and the good news, there is something for everyone.

We also provide some referral only services including one-to-one support and tailored activity plans as well as rehabilitation activity programmes for people who have had heart related problems, balance issues or falls, chronic pain and those recovering from a stroke.

Walking group Victoria Park 2019: I feel a lot better since I started the walks around Victoria Park in St Helens.

We also feel safe which is important to us older generation. Eunice

Walking victoria park 2019: We look forward to our Thursday afternoons because we usually have good weather, and we enjoy the chats with our fellow walkers and we also observe the changes in the environment. We observe the trees and the wildlife and the state of the park and put the world to rights. The gentle exercise is very beneficial, and the fresh air does us good.  Dylys
