Health and Exercise Referral Programmes

Exercise can help manage, improve or reduce the chance of developing many health conditions.

Our colleagues at LED Leisure, have established a Community Health and Wellbeing team.   They work in the community to support local groups and organisations with their health and wellbeing, examples of these include Stroke Survivors activity sessions, Dementia Friendly groups supporting sessions by offering gentle mobility exercises as well as wellbeing walks.  Locally, LED Community Leisure runs a variety of different health programs to support people suffering with long term health conditions.

Alternatively, If you’re recovering from an illness or injury, or just want to improve overall health, you can request an Exercise on Prescription referral from your GP for a personalised 12-week exercise programme at Bridport Leisure Centre.
