We’re back, but with a few changes

We’re so happy to be back delivering this programme again. Like everyone, we’ve had to adapt for COVID-19. Things might be a little different and not all our activities will be starting immediately but our friendly staff are here to welcome you back and help you stay active with us in a safe, but most of all enjoyable way.

Our team are contacting participants to let them know about this support. You can also get in touch with us by emailing active@edinburghleisure.co.uk or calling 0131 458 2260.

About our Community Access Programme

Edinburgh Leisure’s Community Access Programme (CAP) supports community groups, organisations and charities to get the people they work with active. By working in partnership, we can help Edinburgh’s most vulnerable individuals and communities get active and improve the lives of the people of Edinburgh.

Regular physical activity helps:

- Reduce stress and improves mood
- Boosts confidence and self esteem
- Improves balance, flexibility and posture
- Improves quality and quantity of sleep
- Reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes in later life
- Build relationships and social skills

CAP provides organisations with:

Training to promote physical activity...

CAP provides training for organisations looking to use physical activity as a tool to improve the lives of their service users.

Discounted group access...

CAP provides reduced prices for partner organisations to access Edinburgh Leisure activities with groups of service users.

Discount cards for service users...

Helping service users incorporate activity into daily life.

For more information please email active@edinburghleisure.co.uk or call 0131 458 2100.
