Active Lifestyle Scheme
Introduction to the scheme
The scheme began in 2001, looking at the development of the GP Referral Scheme. Based at Hinckley Leisure Centre, it started by running three supervised sessions per week and achieved 63 referrals in its first year. The scheme has been a great success story and the number of referrals has increased substantially every year since it began, to over 700 referees in 2015.
The Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, Places for People Leisure, Sport in Desford and Public Health have been central to the creation and development of the programme. The scheme has grown no end since its conception and no longer offers just the referral sessions, but a variety of additional schemes identified below;
- Chair Based Exercise
- Older People's Exercise Group
- MacMillans's Cancer Support and Physical Activity Group
- Smoking Cessation
- Walking for Health
