Promoting physical activity through the health and social care workforce
Being active has never been more important, for both our physical health and our mental wellbeing. Being able to reduce the risk of Heart Disease, Type 2 Diabetes, Depression, Anxiety, Dementia, and many other conditions by being physically active is widely considered a powerful miracle solution, backed by strong clinical evidence.
Healthcare professionals play a crucial role in promoting physical activity and enabling their patients to be active. By supporting the workforce, we can make sure everyone accessing health and care services is empowered to be more active.
Our aim is to enhance the great care that healthcare professionals are already doing to keep people fit and healthy for longer, and get everyone benefiting from the physical, mental and social benefits of being more active. We are here to help everyone working in health and social care, including both paid and voluntary roles, from GPs, nurses, and allied healthcare professionals, to social care workers and befrienders. Please do share our resources for social workers, healthcare professionals and everyone working within health and social care so that we can get more people moving.
