information DESCRIPTION

Edinburgh Leisure's Active Communities programme supports around 10,000 people a year to get active to improve their health and wellbeing.

Keeping active during the Coronavirus pandemic brings many benefits for your physical and mental health. However, has been made difficult by various restrictions impacting on services and encouraging us to stay at home as much as possible to limit contact with others.

We are delighted that the First Minister's announcement on 11th May means that we can look to bring back a number of our Active Communities Programmes safely. We will continue to offer a range of online, phone and restarting our actual programmes at the moment and our teams are contacting all participants to let them know what is currently, and what will be on offer. You can also get in touch with us by emailing active@edinburghleisure.co.uk or calling 0131 458 2260.

Get active and stay active with Edinburgh Leisure's Active Communities programme...

Being active is key to enjoying a healthy lifestyle and achieving more in your day to day. It doesn’t need to be much, even the simplest of changes can lead to big results. As a charity, Edinburgh Leisure is on a mission to help people lead more active, healthy lives and we can help you to do just that. Our Active Communities team offer many different options, along with dedicated health and wellbeing programmes which can help you get started, no matter what age you are or what your current activity levels are like. We’re here to support you.

We were all born to move in one way or another. Whether you’re looking to try out a low-intensity fitness class, swim, dance, walk, cycle or even garden, you can get active, stay active and achieve more with us. We believe in the power of physical activity and its ability to help improve people’s lives. With friendly advice, specialist programmes and facilities all over Edinburgh, together we can live healthier, more active lives.
