Exercise Referral Scheme

The Exercise Referral Scheme is run by Blaby District Council in partnership with East Leicestershire & Rutland CCG, Leicestershire County Council, Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport, GP Practices and other Health Care Professionals.

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

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

Activity options include the gym, health walks, gardening and community exercise classes. They are based at different locations/times across the district for ease of access.
