Delivered by our in house training team, these social prescribing courses are designed to allow you to embed physical activity in your work with patients to allow them to lead healthier lives.

Social Prescribing and Physical Activity Workshop

Learn about the benefits of physical activity, how to motivate and engage your patients to move more in their daily lives, and use behaviour change principals to develop new healthy routines.

Delivered via Zoom workshops in two parts over two weeks, these workshops are a mix of interactive tasks and roleplay and presentation.

The session will seek to:

  • Upskill staff and volunteers working in social prescribing on sport and physical activity.
  • Help staff and volunteers to be more confident in advocating sport and physical activity to their clients.
  • Support inactive Londoners to become more active.
