Live Active

The Live Active referral scheme is a joint partnership between NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and Inverclyde Leisure. We look to support participants of the scheme to become more active and manage their weight.

Started in 1997 in response to GP requests, the scheme has continued to grow and help many people increase their level of physical activity, improve weight management and equip participants with core skills to lead an  active life.

The main aim of Live Active is to improve the health of the residents of Inverclyde by:

  • Increasing physical activity levels by assisting participants to become more active and supporting them to gain the knowledge, tools and confidence to lead a physically active life.
  • Improving participants weight by supporting participants to address weight management behaviours via physical activity and health eating
  • Improving overall health by supporting participants to address other health behaviours such as smoking, healthy eating and alcohol

Clients must be referred by their GP, practice nurse or other allied health professional who will assess their suitability to be referred onto the scheme.
