What is the Activity Support Programme?

The role will be a hands-off role, in that you will be there to help the service user access the gym, attended classes or help build goals and encourage and push them to be more physically active.

You will not be required to assist them on any gym equipment or teach them techniques.

As part of this programme you will get 4 weeks with a PT and the service user to help build rapport, have an input with their fitness goals and to be part of their further planning process.

These sessions can be at a time that suits you and the service user.
