We encourage referrals from healthcare professionals including GPs, Nurses, Allied Healthcare Professionals and Mental Health Workers, who can refer people directly via our portal below if they are registered:
The Move More Referral programme is a 12-week behavioural change programme aimed at supporting people who are currently inactive, have a medical condition, or are in poor health and need support to include physical activity into their everyday life.
Our team of friendly Move More Referral Instructors are highly qualified and experienced exercise professionals who have been trained in Behaviour Change, Motivational Interviewing, and Exercise on Referral. This means they are well placed to recommend and prescribe safe and effective exercise for a variety of medical conditions to get you moving more.
If you feel you would benefit from Move More Referral, but are not seeing a health professional, you can contact us below to ask for some advice about referring yourself:
You’ll meet one of the team at a local community venue to discuss how you can take your first steps towards a more active lifestyle. During this consultation, the Move More Instructor will work with you to create action plans with realistic and achievable goals -addressing personal barriers, confidence levels and developing a personal plan to get your levels of activity to where you would like them to be.
Over a period of twelve weeks, you will receive support from the Move More team to develop and undertake your personal Move More Plan, which will consist of attending a mixture of low impact exercise classes, walks and cycle rides, depending on your preferences. The Move More team will also help you to build physical activity into your everyday life to improve your health and wellbeing.
