Live Active

The Live Active referral scheme is a joint partnership between Inverclyde Leisure and NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde.

Since its launch in 1997, our focus has been on helping people increase their level of physical activity, and gain core skills to lead an active life.

Live Active aims to improve the health of the residents of Inverclyde by:

  • Increasing physical activity levels by supporting participants to gain the knowledge, tools and confidence to lead a physically active life.
  • Improving overall health by encouraging participants to address other health behaviours such as smoking, diet, and alcohol.

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

For further information, please contact our Live Active advisors on 01475 213136.
