Community Access Programme

Edinburgh Leisure's Community Access Programme (CAP) supports community groups, organisations and charities to get the people they work with active.  By working in partnership, we can help Edinburgh's most vulnerable individuals and communities get active and improve the lives of the people of Edinburgh.

Regular physical activity helps:

  • Reduce stress and improves mood
  • Boosts confidence and self esteem
  • Improves balance, flexibility and posture
  • Improves quality and quantity of sleep
  • Reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes in later life
  • Build relationships and social skills
