BE ACTIVE...

You can benefit from supported low cost access to local facilities for gym, swim and fitness classes with our Be Active voucher scheme. Vouchers can be used at: Edinburgh Liesure; Wester Hailes Education Centre & Napier University (Engage).

Active Steps...

Active Steps is run in partnership with The Health Agency in Wester Hailes and aims to support people living in South West Edinburgh to become more physically active & maintain a healthy diet in the long term. We will help you to make small changes in your everyday routines that will set you on track for a healthier lifestyle.

Who can benefit?

Being more active and eating nutritious food is a positive step for everyone and we know that these are behaviours that also have a positive impact on mental wellbeing. However your GP is likely to refer you to our services if you require help with any of the following:

- Weight management
- Type 2 Diabetes
- One or more long term conditions: COPD; Hypertension (High Blood Pressure); Arthritis.

Our activities are suitable for all levels of fitness regardless of your health and wellbeing. The process starts with an initial one to one chat to explore your individual health needs. Then you may be registered for one of our services or another service in Edinburgh – depending on what’s best for you and your current situation.

How do I access Active Steps?

Your GP, or another health professional may have suggested that you come along and they may wish to work with us to monitor your progress (if you are agreeable), or you can simply get in touch with:
