Exercise Referral Scheme

The Exercise Referral Scheme is run by Blaby District Council in partnership with Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, GP Practices and other health professionals.

It offers people who are currently inactive and have certain medical conditions that could benefit from physical activity the opportunity to participate in physical activity sessions.

The scheme is 12-weeks and allows participants to:

  • Get a special rate
  • Take part in exercise at a convenient venue in the local community
  • Exercise under the guidance of qualified exercise professionals

The 12-week programme offers clients ongoing encouragement and support to make the first steps in becoming more active on a regular basis.
