Active Travel Social Prescribing

Our FREE programme is designed to help adults to begin to make cycling and walking part of their everyday lives. The team supports them to use the free tools and links provided to make active travel decisions and achieve sustainable travel goals.

Clients get the 1-1 support of a Health Improvement Practitioner; they will work with them to discuss how they can build walking, cycling and wheeling into their everyday lives. Additionally, they may develop a personalised travel plan for the individual. They will identify existing walking and cycling provision for the individual to access and support them to access it. The Health Improvement Practitioner will also work to help identify barriers to active travel and how they can be overcome.

Referral is essential. Please see referral criteria below.
