Support to get moving

Including exercise daily in your routine can really make a difference to your health. Regular exercise can lower your blood pressure, boost your immune system, help you to maintain a healthy weight and keep you feeling happier and healthier.

Adults should aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity activity a week or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity activity a week.

We understand it can be challenging to know where to start but One You Kent are here to help. We can offer one-to-one appointments to help you set goals, increase your activity levels and find local activities to suit you. Fill in a referral form and a friendly advisor will call you to talk through the options in your area.

Walking for your health and wellbeing

Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier. Almost anyone can do it, anytime and anywhere.

Walking briskly can help you build stamina, burn excess calories and make your heart healthier. It can also reduce stress and help you feel good and sleep better. Even a brisk 10-minute daily walk has lots of health benefits and counts towards your recommended 150 minutes of weekly exercise.

Group walks

Free Wellbeing Walks are an enjoyable way to discover your local area, meet new people and improve your health! They are led by volunteers along a planned route - just turn up 10 minutes early in suitable outdoor clothing and footwear.
