Walking and exercise referral programmes
Search for support and activities to help you to be more active. We offer:
Health walks: Short walks to help you to get active and meet new people. They're perfect if you are recovering from illness or just need a bit of extra motivation to take more exercise. Walks last 45 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes.
Exercise referral: A personalised structured activity programme delivered by qualified instructors to get people active. If you're aged at least 18 years and also have a medical condition or are recovering from an illness or operation, you may be eligible for the scheme. The scheme is delivered by local leisure providers who offer a range of gym programmes and classes such as yoga, pilates and swimming – you can pick the option that suits you.
You need to be referred to the scheme by your GP or healthcare professional (e.g. physiologist, physiotherapist or nurse).Healthcare professionals and leisure providers that are new to the scheme can email PHadmin@kent.gov.uk to find out more.
