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 courses will be starting immediately but our friendly team of coaches 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.

Normal service details...

Worried about your child's weight? Want to help them lead a healthy, happy, active life? Then let's Get Going - a new family healthy lifestyle programme funded by NHS Lothian.

Get Going offers support to help children (aged 5 to 11 years) and young people (12 to 17 years) to get active, eat well and achieve a healthier weight which will help to reduce the risk of diseases like coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis and some cancers in later life.

The emphasis is on fun and feeling good. It’s about getting active as a family and working together to make small lifestyle changes. Parents will have the chance to share ideas with support and guidance from a Child Healthy Lifestyle coach while children gain from the social benefits that come from making friends and participating in fun active games.

The free sessions last between 60 to 90 minutes and take place in Edinburgh Leisure or community venues, once a week over nine weeks. After the nine weeks, families receive ongoing support from our team with a follow up meeting after three and six months to review progress and to help keep participants on track for a healthier life. You can contact us for more information or ask a health professional to put you forward for this programme.

Referrals...

Referrals can be made by a health professional or you can click on the self-referral button at https://www.edinburghleisure.co.uk/activities/active-communities/get-going or visit NHS Get Going to refer your child.

For further details on taking part please contact our Active Communities team on 0131 458 2260 or email active@edinburghleisure.co.uk.
