Youth Exercise Referral

Developed in partnership with Edinburgh Leisure and the Royal Hospital for Sick Children (RHSC), the Youth Exercise Referral Programme offers young people with various medical conditions the opportunity to access a specialised programme of physical activity, to aid the treatment of their medical condition. The programme, which is by physiotherapist referral, invites young people in secondary school who are being treated for one of the following conditions to take part in the programme:

  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Chronic illness resulting in de-conditioning 
  • Coordination difficulties 
  • Musculoskeletal conditions requiring ongoing rehabilitation

Aiming to get young people active long term, the programme offers participants an individual, goal-based gym programme at a concessionary rate at any of Edinburgh Leisure’s facilities. For more information on the programme please contact: Youth Development Officer 0131 458 2186
