Our Active Options

Physical activity promotes a number of positive health outcomes; improved physical and mental health, quality of life, social connectedness and disease prevention.

We recognise that becoming more active can be a challenge especially when living with a long-term health condition, so in order to support health-enhancing physical activity, we have developed a number of accessible and affordable programmes that provide a supportive environment in which a person can be become more active.

Our level one and two classes are suitable for people who have problems with activities of daily living, may have limited standing balance and who walk with an aid.

The focus of this class is to work with people to maintain and improve their strength and balance to help prevent falls and enable people to live as independently as possible. The class also provides an opportunity for participants to meet new people within their community.
