Active Wellbeing Service

The Active Wellbeing Service

The Active Wellbeing service is an innovative, bespoke project brought to you by Suffolk Sport which aims to support people with long term health conditions to be more active. The access criterion for the service is:

Anyone doing less than 30 minutes of moderate physical activity a week with one or more of the following long term health conditions:

  1. Established cardiovascular disease who is stable including atrial fibrillation, hypertension, stroke and transient ischaemic attacks. The service is suitable for those who have just finished Cardiac Rehabilitation (Phase 3) or who are taking part in a community Phase 4 Cardiac Rehabilitation class.
  2. Type 2 diabetes.
  3. Living with cancer or treated for cancer in the last 5 years.

Please note that all participants are advised to check with their healthcare professional that it is safe for them to take part in physical activity.

With the support of one of our Active Wellbeing Advisors, clients will be able to discuss their motivations to get active, different options that are available locally to them and overcome any barriers, issues or concerns they might have. The service is focused on the individual, and the Advisor will support clients over the period of a year through consultations, phone calls and quarterly reviews to provide support, motivation and advice. Clients will be signposted to local physical activity opportunities which have been checked by our team to ensure they are safe and appropriate. These range from health walks to gentle exercise classes, falls prevention, Fit Villages projects, adapted sports, as well as health condition specific exercise programmes. Our Advisors will help people to find the right option for them, taking into account their interests, location, transport issues, any additional needs, budget and other concerns.
