What is the Move More Referral Programme?

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:

What happens on the Move More Referral Programme?

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.

The Move More journey…

1. YOUR INITIAL APPOINTMENT

At this appointment you will have the opportunity to discuss the steps you can take to start getting active with your Move More Instructor. Together you will look at what you want to achieve, how to get there and how we can support you.

This will include agreeing your personal Move More plan to guide you. The instructor will also help to find the right activities to suit your needs.

2. SIX WEEK CATCH UP

After 6 weeks, your Move More Instructor will give you a call to see how you are getting on with your plan. You will discuss progress so far and how you are feeling.

This is an opportunity to talk about any concerns you may have and agree on your plan for the next 6 weeks.

3. TWELVE WEEK APPOINTMENT

After twelve weeks, you will have a review appointment with your Move More Instructor. This will be a chance to look at your progress so far and see how you’re getting on. At this appointment, you can discuss how you are feeling, identify any health improvements and develop your plan for the coming months.

4. SIX MONTH CATCH UP

Hopefully you are sticking to your plan and are feeling the benefits of being more active. A Move More Instructor will contact you to see how you are getting on.

Further support may be offered to help motivate you.
